SM40 on Petzval62mm FD 18/5/18

Post by DJD » Fri May 18, 2018 12:29 pm

Dear All,
Been playing with a small 62mm Petzval scope with my SM20 etalon on the front. Gives me a little
more image scale whilst still covering the full disk.
Skies not be great but a little better today. Struggling with the low contrast due to contrails.
Anyway got something worth showing I think.
50 frames stacked from 300 frame SER with my PGR G3.
To see full size right click and view image.
Best wishes,
David

Great FD image David

I also have a Pre-Meade Coronado SM40 and I love it (it produces a very uniform image)
