Good evening friends,
I want to share with you my first, light image taken through my William Optics ZS61.
It is of NGC 6888 and surrounding environs. The telescope has a dedicated WO61 adjustable field flattener which I think I have set up correctly.
The camera is a modified Canon 600D and I used an Optolong L-Pro EOS clip filter.
The image is the result of 20x180 seconds at 800 iso. Captured in APT and Plate Solved in APT, guided using the latest version of PHD2. 
Stacked in the latest version of DSS and finally processed in the very latest version of Affinity.
Here is a link showing you a plate solved image uploaded to Astrometry.net
