Terry, about 20 min sun and than continue clouds before the sun.
The seeing was absolutely bad, but the image result is fair.

Excellent sharp detailed images!
What is an eliminator please?
Is your 150mm scope an triplet apochromatic refractor to get this sharpness, and does it need a front D-ERF?

Thanks.

Great image!

Also wondering what an 'eliminator' is, or is for?

Magnus, a "eliminator or sort of tilter" is needed when you have Newton rings on the image (sensitive in Ha imaging).
ZWO calls it tilter and Daystar calls it eliminator, but they both have a different way of removing the Newton rings.

Yes my refractor is a triplet apochromat 150 mm with a Baader DERF front filter (see my avatar).

Ahh, so eliminator is synonymous with tilter, I learned something new today!
