Things coming together

Tonight is a fantastic night.. it's beautiful and clear, and also the night of the Perseid meteor shower.  Whether I put my Nikon on top of the scope to try to capture it is yet to be seen.

 

I've refined my polar alignment and got it pretty dialed in, and have got the QHY5L-II working as an autoguider on the WO66.  I'm currently capturing images of the Crescent Nebula and they seem to be tracking well, so tonight might turn out to be a very good night!

 

The next things I need to work out are my auto-focusing, and the field flattener.
