Nice imaging. That 130 looks real good. How do you like the think tank?

Looks like your seeing was about as good/bad as mine yesterday although the view from your observing site is certainly better than mine :lol: :roll: :lol:
I found it hopeless trying to image in white light (although I was being a bit silly using a C9.25) but better in Ha and CaK.

Always good to see your images.. keep up the good work!

Nice captures Dave! Are you using the scope full aperture for the full disks?
