Thanks guys :) I think I am settling on the 174 chip but I have no idea what hydrogen alpha system I will be using yet. I will also probably go for the ZWO version for cost reasons, a lot of people use them and don't seem to complain and I fancy a change. I have been struggling to get my 2 point gre...

These are great David :bow you did well to stitch 6 panes flawlessly when there are so few surface features. I must say I didn't realise it was a mosaic until you said.
