I bought some time on Itelescopes.net and set up a run on Omega Centauri from 
Australia. When I imaged this it was at 70 degrees altitude. I set up a 90 
minute LRGB run, all 60 second subs but it got cloudy and the domes closed. I 
was able to get 12 images on it. I may try a different telescope because this 
is almost a little too deep. It is an RCS 12.5 inch with a focal length of 
2331mm at f 7.4. The camera is an SBIG ST8 XME. This is luminance only so I 
will be going back for more. Pretty impressive FOV.
