Re: Aug 10 HA Quark 152 Processed

Thank you all for the encouragement. Phil, I increased the temp on a very quick test and you were correct but my results are anecdotal rather than accurate so I will be thorough this weekend. Alexandra, thank you for that blog link...great information and I will replicate the test Saturday I hope. G...

Re: Aug 10 HA Quark 152 Processed

Sage advice. Thank you.

I’ve not read a description of the Quark temp that makes me comprehend yet and my fiddling with the knob has not helped me yet.

I’m excited to be learning.

Aug 10 HA Quark 152 Processed

I'm experimenting with post-processing. What I found fascinating was that in the captured video I saw NO proms, but after curves in IMPPG I found these. I found the proms at the "whale's tale" end of the IMPPG curves. 152mm, Aeries D-ERF, Quark native at f27 taken at 10am (seeing was medium at best)...

Re: Two PST etalons doublestacked

Excellent DS work and the moon is terrific. I have found that using a 12nm HA filter is fantastic in the moon. Makes my achro look like an apo.

Videos of Quark number two

So conceptually I am enjoying my new Quark chromosphere and new ZWO ASI174mm. At f27 native there are hints of terrific detail when the seeing permits. Using a focal reducer gives satisfying views of the disk at medium resolution. Here are links to three videos testing what I perceive as uneven illu...

Here are mine for. 8-3, one of which matches yours but yours is far superior. These are grabs not processed.

Re: Images from August 3

I shot this yesterday as well with a quark and 152mm at about f30. Did not have time to experiment but yours are nicer than mine. I get reflections from a iv/it filter I have and poorer contrast.

Nice work!
