Two spots - 7 May 2019

Lunt LST80Ha
TeleVue 5x Powermate
ZWO ASI174MM

Still using SharpCap for the acquisition. I couldn't find the SSM threshold setting in Genika Astro. I know it's there. I have found it before, but it is in an obscure tab somewhere that I was simply unable to locate. I gave up and reverted to SharpCap. The seeing was still very unsettled and hazy. I can't complain too much. At least it was good enough to get an image. For the last couple of months, I couldn't even get that. Looking forward to some clear skies

Nice capture, Bruce. Funny, I had exactly the same issue with Genika Astro...still not resolved. It’s there somewhere.

Very nice shot Bruce. Let us know how you make out with Genika/SSM. There are options.
