Another first light for my TEC APO 140 refractor. Seemed to have some problems with my biases and flats I haven't tracked down. Light pollution really was a problem too (I had 29,000 counts in the background in my 10 minute exposures). Good part is I was able to guide for 10+ minutes using a Toucam webcam with the new Maxim DL/CCD DirectShow driver.
