The weekend had some reasonably clear skies and here is the result
Brightness is not linear -- I've boosted the low lights of the galaxy compared to the supernova. In the original images, the nova significantly outshines the rest.

After some trouble with my primary setup (flexure issue, I think), I switched to the 925HD instead. The hope is, the shorter mechanic between the rear cell and the camera will avoid the issues I currently see with the RCT. As you can see, the results improved, albeit not without a fight. Still sometimes PHD won't be tracking -- especially along the DEC-axis :-((
