I am fairly new to Astronomy, having only purchased an 8" Dobsonian in December 2019

I am just getting into DSO's but still getting to grips with my EQ platform and at the moment only getting short exposures sub 30 seconds, but actually very happy with the results I'm getting especially since i am located just outside London in Bortle 8 skies.

I have also been using my 80mm TS Optics refractor scope with my ASI290mc for most of my imaging - i has a focal length of 328mm and I am frankly over the moon with the pictures I'm getting with it.

i have recently purchased an IOptron Smart EQ Pro+ GoTo mount for my small scope and I am finally getting the longer exposures needed in such a light polluted area in conjunction with an UHC filter - new learning curve and enjoying the challenge of getting fainter and harder targets
