This is my first deep-sky image taken with the newly acquired 0.4m f/ 6.3 Cassegrain at Tacande Observatory.

From top to bottom the marked globular clusters are BD226D (Vmag 17.89), DA069 (~18), B243D (18.05), B238D (18.05), B235D (17.93), B245D (18.22), B356 (17.34) and B108D (18.80).

The brightest star is TYC 2805-152-1 (Vmag 10.04) at 00:43:42 +41:53:12

I'd intended to image the field of AE And (a SDOR type variable) but missed!  I'm still learning how to drive the equipment.
