This image really speaks for itself. This was captured at the native focal ratio of my Celestron C8, f10. I was really just experimenting, since frankly I figured conditions were too hot and hazy to get anything decent. This conclusion comes from the fact that last night (Monday) I couldn't seem to get any decent deep-sky grabs of galaxies, and I chalked that up to either the JrPro was too hot (It was the warmest day of the year so far at about 90deg) and/or the sky was just too hazy to pull any detail. The JrPro completely redeemed itself however during this observing session. Now if only I can get my CG5 to track better, I'll be in really nice shape.
