I thought I'd have a play with the Star Adventurer mount last night. Scope was the Altair Astro 60 EDF and camera the Canon 1000D (modded). I found that 60 sec exposures were fine, 120 secs I discarded about half of them. Altogether this is a stack of 20x60 secs + 19x120 secs + 6 darks. Captured using APT and stacked with Astropixel Processor. Processed in Photoshop.

Love the detail in the nebulosity Brian. Need a bit of "dodging" to bring out the trapezium though? :D
