Fantastic session, Pedro. Glad you received your G Band filter and already put it to good use.

Great close ups Pedro, do you like the G-band? it certainly adds an extra dimension, I'm looking forward to when you catch that WL flare with it :)

In time I will probably end up replacing my Edmund 430nm 10nm bp filter with the Altair 430nm 2nm bp one.

Thanks Alexandra & James

The Altair G-Band filter is not cheap but it is great for HR imaging. I have to wait for the best seeing moments. I only used my X2.5 Powermate. It will intersting to use larger apertures (e.g. APM 180mm F/6)

I will try an astronomik 12 nm OIII filter as well - transmission of 95% at the OIII Line (501 nm)
