Default astro: m3

First light, new camera...
Guess I can't complain about the moon at least the sky was clear enough
to try out the QHY8, http://www.qhyccd.com/QHY8.html
It is pretty nice, well made, good price.
The mk69 needs collimating and I worked on the mount after this imaging
session so next time out it should track better.

10x300 seconds
Intes MK-69 (6" f/6 Mak-Cass 900mm fl)
Vixen Sphinx SXD Mount
QHY8
