Lovely red Sun, Pedro; a much more realistic rendition of the view in hydrogen alpha.

Nice views across the spectrum.

Very good Pedro! What are your impressions of the 290M compared to your usual Grasshopper?

Superb shots Pedro...well done :bow

I agree the 290 is a great camera for planets, I have the mono version and can put it on the C14 without any barlows and get the resolution I want. I don't use for solar often, but it seems to do a nice job on the LS80T with no barlows too.

I'm thinking of getting one for the SM90 for this exact reason.
