M13 - DSI Pro 1st Light at WataugaSkies

Messier 13 - DSI Pro First Light at WataugaSkies!

Equipment: Meade LX90 8" SCT@f/3.0, DSI Pro, IR filter, polar mounted, guiding attempted in high winds.
Settings: 5.2s x 60, gain=92, offset=42. No darks subtracted (due to rapid temperature decline)!
Processing: Auto-stack taken from Envisage and loaded into Photoshop CS for quick curves enhancement only.

Winds were blowing hard enough to knock off the AstroZap dew-shield prior to the start of this set of exposures... So, stars are not quite what they should be!! Still, I must say I am impressed with the smaller stars provided by the DSI Pro and greater star-field depth as compared to the DSI Color.
