Great job Matt! Very detailed and pleasing to the eye :jump:

The contrast uniformity looks outstanding - the LS80 by any chance?

Hi Bob
I wish I could get the 80 out - these were the LS60 in SS mode. I really wanted to use the 80 but conditions (seeing and clouds) have played havoc with my imaging time. The 60 seems to do OK regardless - the 80 suffers a lot! I think my next session will open with the 80 and just let rip!

Thanks for the kind words - these were single stacked - I do have the 50mm double but I do find it hard to use - the evenness is difficult to achieve.
