Image Details:

Last night I was able to follow the Elephant's Trunk nebula down to the horizon and captured 6 additional hours of data. My setup was a bit unorthodox: I had my Celestron EdgeHD 9.25" guiding for my Svbony sv503 70ED that usually serves as my guide scope for the Celestron. They worked well with their roles reversed. I dithered aggressively and was able to drizzle 3x the camera resolution, then zoom in on the trunk and surrounding area. Here is IC1396 in a capture I call, "Elefante."
