Rosette in Ha and first time guiding

Yesterday was cloudy, but i was in rush to test the adapters i received, and i only tested the adapter for Canon lens connection [with ZWO filter wheel], but i failed, because i thought it should be 55mm, but i found out that it must be 44mm actually, so i ended up to remove the filter wheel and place the filter on the sensor window, but vignetting is there anyway i think [or maybe that what i think].

The sky condition wasn't good, because we all know the enemy number 1 for all astrophotographers in the world, but i didn't stop, the sky was really clear if the enemy is moving away, and with the moon nearly full, and under Bortle 8/9 sky, what can you expect after all?

The only good thing from last night is that finally i managed to use guiding, so almost officially that was the first night i used guiding with, but i have to build my next plans or projects on that now, so we will see what will be next targets results.

Thanks!

I am focused on getting all details i can of any target i image then later i will worry about how to clean it for nearly perfection, one step by the time, and to your information, i already added flat frames which are supposed to correct the vignetting.
