Quite spectacular, and that prom!

Doesn't mean I know what I'm doing, though!

I couldn't say one cam is better than the other here. Both are wonderful.
I've the M-Max, but bigger is better right? Surely the Grasshopper wins.

Except the composition - seeing that expansive dark void of space around the first one, the loneliness of it, and yet the eyes of billions welcome it every morning.

The first one for me, from a non scientific arty farty perspective :)


We can forgive a child who is afraid of the dark. The real tragedy is when men are afraid of the light. (Plato)

Late to the solar party - April 2023. Missed 5 cycles. Much to learn. Much to spend.

Boxed for 15 years - Zenithstar 80, Skywatcher 150 f8, Celestron C9.25.
Now all have seen the Sun and demand I spend further, without regret.
