Good job Paul, the IR really does handle low alt very well and produced quite a crisp result.

Regards

I'm curious guys, we can't see IR obviously but is there any improvement visually on low altitude objects with it?

A good start to the season Paul :waytogo: - but get that obsolete bit of gear out and start using the ASI120MM, :lol: it really shines on Saturn with the C14 and there's no "watching-the-paint-dry" stuff re the framerate for the blue channel! :)

YES SIR! (Actually I didn't have the camera when I shot that image. I'm sure you are talking about something like this image from February 7...just a quick and dirty processing so be nice. :lol:
