Spent the evening at Neil's house. You need to move your scope around to image different areas of the sky and avoid trees, but the sky is quite dark and no street lights and porch lights to contend with. The views were more than satisfactory until some high thin clouds rolled in after midnight. Then there would be partial clearing before another wave rolled in.
Despite a computer crash, my mount binding up, and the clouds, I was able to get 4 different imaging runs, and I am not to disappointed in them. They aren't great, but they are definitely an improvement over the majority of the images I obtained with my old mount and camera.
M27 is only 19 frames at 30 seconds each. M57 is 12 frames at 30 seconds. NGC 4565 is just 18 frames @ 40 seconds. M63 is 47 frames at 40 seconds.

While the moon was up, I got my first view through a Bino-viewer on Neil's 16" Lightbridge. Wow!! What a difference 2 eyes makes. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it......just amazing detail, even on a night of average seeing. Saturn wasn't bad either, although the seeing went from good to bad and back again on a second by second basis. I did manage to see 4 of Saturn's moons during intervals of good seeing. I'm sold! I need a bino viewer!
