Thanks all for the thumb up. Yup, 90% of it is seeing, most of the rest is trying to not get carried away with the image processing. The DMK21 camera is totally killer.

Very nice and sharp!


I continue to be blown away with the quality of images shot with video through small scopes. The Stellarvue 102ED optics are most excellent. Equipment sure has come a long way since I started working with video in 1999.

That is an amazing shot. The 102ED is proving itself quite well in your hands. I think the scope is great, but you also have to take credit for these excellent results.
