Re: Some September 21st Sun

Nice work, Brian.

I have the same camera and was advised that Binning 2x2 made the already large pixels too large. What was your reasoning to try? It obviously still paid off in nice proms.

Quark f52 first attempt 9/21

I am experimenting with masking my 152mm to 95mm and like the results in many cases. This morning I tried masked and unmasked with a 2x barlow bringing the image below to about f52 for the 152mm and f84 for the 95mm (masked).

Re: Large Prom + High res lunar images (Sept 19)

Excellent both Prom and Moon!

I'm trying to calculate the focal length with your rig...seems very high-res. You used a Daystar ERF, but what was the h-alpha rig?

Re: Quark 9/14/19 Limbs

FWIW, I am declaring satisfaction with this quark. Daystsr and I chatted quite a while and reviewed all my work to date, offering solid assessment and good tips.
