Hello everybody: today a mid afternoon session. Experimenting large aperture with the new FLIR Grasshopper 3: conditions were not right for it, but I tried anyway :shock: . Also, this camera gets Newton rings, this is the only image that did not show them. There was a small but interesting prom. Fun afternoon !

Thank you, James and Maurits, for your comments. The close up was with the HaT/Combo Quark, the second one the SM90 single stack stopped down to 70mm.

:bow Wow, excellent details. I took my scope out Sunday, and for the first time in a while (cold weather), I enjoyed watching and imaging with my Lunt. Nothing compared to your images ;)
