Looking forward to your first light photos with this mount very soon. :)

Sorry... Was focussing on your mount. Then the averted vision managed to resolve messier 169 in the background ;). Else I would NEVER have noticed it!

Thank u all for your kind comments and some (sassy ones,LOL).
Anyway, with the help from my buddy, Astrosiao, we had deployed
mount and manage to take some pics on Tuesday nite.
I am still trying very hard to process pic and will update
on Astrophotography thread (noob to image process as well).

Also thanks to cloud_cover for his simpliflied step by step
guide to the mount setup for alignment. Saved me alot of
time going thru manual on site.
