These 2 filters were heated and performed very well, but a friend ...

Thanks for looking and commenting, BTW, the seeing was not so good (did not take the SSM), but it was hazy with clouds running by.

I haven´t heard of Heiko since long, so I use the old Lucam for my 2 Lumeneras and 5 TIS.
It is a nice and easy software.
For the ZWO174 and QHY I use FireCapture.

Here are a couple of coatings from my scopes.
TEC 10" f/20 Maksutov, and a hand picked 12" f/10 Meade LX200.
Both with very good optics.
Have most of my inside scope tubes covered with cork lininig aside of air fans.
