Had a go last night with the Atik Camera and C11 again with 15 Second exposures.

Struggled as my original settings that I was using to help optimise the streaming videos seems to off disappeared :roll: but still managed to get M1 and the image improves over time.

Apologies its not in the middle but every time I tried it jumped off the screen. Too much backlash in the gears. Still -2 degrees I'm not going to complain :lol:

I choose to image with an 11" SCT Celestron in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard......

Excellent - that brings out the structure and colour of the hydrogen gas-cloud really well. 8-)
Were you using the focal-reducer and UHC filter?

Yes I did, I removed the IR filter and replaced it with the UHC
