This is the first image I have taken with a new GSO 200mm f/4 Newtonian. I am hoping this will give me a good medium field imaging telescope. Its my third imaging Newtonian and I'm really starting to like this design! Conditions were hazy and a mostly full Moon was up. I mostly wanted to test the changes I'd made to the scope to reach focus with my CCD camera and it worked with 0.25 inches to spare.
