Today's SUN (20190106) | APM180 F/6 First Light

FIRST LIGHT APM180 F/6 (HR WL X2 Barlow). The seeing was not great and only the X2 Barlow was used. The EM400 caries the APM180 perfectly

A nice session as usual, looking for more results with the big cannon.

Great to see the new scope performs so nicely in WL, and all images are as beautiful as ever :bow

It is always a treat to see the results of your sessions.

Excellent Pedro! Kinda reminds me of the images you get with the TEC and a 3x. How did you find the canon? what are your first impressions?

Thanks again guys

I found it in France (near Paris) in a Belgium site (second hand astromarket). It was relatively cheap, new Markus Ludes was asking 4000 US$ about 10 years ago. I payed much less (25% of the price)

The seeing today was fair to bad

That is a bargain at that price! With excellent seeing and a 5x powermate it should give some interesting results!

Thanks Mark

I will give it a go with better seeing. The sun is very low even for us. It will be better in a couple of months
