Awesome!!

Great photography. You give me a chance to see in better detail close up to what I can see in my SolarMax 60DS.

Always performance I aspire to.

What is your preferred quark dual setting? I know it varies by Quark...


Explore Scientific 152mm f6.5 achromat
Aeries D-ERF
Quark Chromosphere f27 native, (f14 when focal reduced)
Mallincam .5x focal reducer (large format)
ZWO174 (IMX249 chip 5um)

Thanks guys

The TEC140 / Quark combo performs very well. Usually I use a 0.5X TeleVue reducer if the seeing is not good. I never touch the QUARK dial, I leave it in the central position

Thank you Pedro. I’ve not figured out the magic of both proms and surface but I’ll get there.

Thanks guys

Jack: If you want to have both (surface details and proms) you have to increase the gamma setting
