Thanks for the kind words, everybody. When capturing the avis I knew the seeing was special, but even so, I was very surprised by the end result.
As for the C8, only five days earlier it did this one, so... :grin:

Seeing is everything. You certainly were well prepared for that good air. Like everyone else, I think you have an exceptional image.

Looks great!

Now I know what the limits of the C8 is, unfortunately my webcam is holding me back :(. Gonna give it a shot tomorrow since we are supposed to have really good seeing. Will have to see how it goes!

That's not the limit for the C8, with an ICX618 or e2V 661equipped camera (mine has the old ICX098) I think on good seeing you can get even more detail.

Your C8 must be a very good visual telescope. Was this one made in California? About how old is it?

Well, visually it's not that good because SCTs are a bit fussy by definition because of the sensitivity to ambient temperature variations and the big central obstruction. Mine is a three year old average C8, but with three vent holes with fans (that I never use) behind the primary and small vent holes around the corrector plate, Intes Micro style. I also wrap it up with a thermal insulation sheet during avi aquisition to avoid convection currents inside the tube.
The truth is I got lucky and caught the exceptional seeing we had the night I took the pictures.

If it's only three years old then this would be a Chinese made C8 with vents added by someone. It a great image. The best I have seen with a C8. Thanks.
