A sort of clear sky was presented (poor transparency), so I grabbed the kit and had a go at "Pete and Paul's Astronomical Challenges (no 5)" - familiar to those who attended Winchester (Another great event if i may say so). This is the result of 27 min exposure. The "brighter" objects are detected down to mag 19 roughly. One star is G 19.6 (Gaia Mag). Hope to do a bit better next time. Sorry about all the overlays, but this was needed to illustrate what was being shown, which is 1/4 of the CCD cropped in.

Nice!  Must have a go myself when I'm back in La Palma.
