Last night I attempted longer exposures through my LX200 mounted on its new wedge. Naturally, I left the polar drift alignment help docs at home, so I had to wing it. I targeted a few different objects, but so far this has turned out to be the best.
This is the NGC869 "Double Cluster" in Perseus. It's a lovely sight, visually, and I think this image captures it fairly well. Click on it for full size!
Meade LX200 8" F6.3
8*90 second exposures
Stacked in Deep Sky Stacker
Still working on the other photos and will post them here if they are worth it!
