I have been working on the collimation of my C8 and had a chance during the night to take some images at prime focus. The moon was bright and not far away so I was amazed how well it turned out. I did not use bias or flat frames for this particular image. When the moon is not an issue I plan on going hunting for some more globular clusters with this setup.
