Elephant's Trunk

Finally able to use the roll off roof. I set up the CEM60 on the PierTech2 pier. I used the new QSI1620WSG-8 on the TSA120/w reducer. I used the ASI290 MINI on the ST80 for guiding. This is my first attempt of the Elephant's Trunk. Its only 4hrs and done in DSS and PS.

Not a bad start! obviously needs more time to get rid of the noise, but now with the obs you'll have plenty of time!
What's up with that funky shaped star at the top?

I checked other pics online. It is actually a double star. Maybe more time will separate it better. There are 2 or 3 doubles in the pic that look weird but jus doubles.

So far I love it!!! Let you know more in a month or so when I have time to really evaluate it.
