Another extremely clear night here so I decided to go after another target. This time it was M17, also known as the Omega Nebula. I managed to get a pretty good polar alignment this time and I think I have isolated the electrical noise issue I had last time and should have it fixed soon. Once again I am incredibly impressed with how the SBIG camera has performed.
