I waited for this to cross the meridian and then took 40minutes worth of images. Halfway through I found the corrector plate was starting to frost up and so applied a second dewheater. Not sure it did the focus much good. 

Its in Taurus and so near the ecliptic so asteroids are inevitable also in view - 3 can be seen in this image. There were 6 in the full frame.

I really must go deep with this again sometime.
