AR2741 with 250mm RCT

Post by Carbon60 » Tue May 14, 2019 8:38 am

I spent more time re-collimating the RCT with a Takahashi collimating scope and gave it a run this morning before travelling off to Nantes on Business.

The conditions were not ideal, but there's definitely an improvement over my recent trials. I think with this and improved stacking (as per Alexandra's thoughts in a recent post) then there might be further hope for better results.

Excellent image, Stu.
Looks like great potential for hi-res images with that scope.
Cheers.
