Had a complete computer disaster and had to reload all camera drivers and capture software. tried it out last night with a DMK41 and 102mm F11 Fraunhofer from Lyra optics. Used a Baader 35Nm H-a filter to cut down the glare and steady the atmosphere. Image a bit less than half-scale to meet forum rules. So glad to get it all working again as felt rather ill when it all died on me; I guess most of us who use PC's have known that feeling at one time or another!
Cheers,
Alan C.

That's a really nice clear shot, Alan! Glad you were able to resurrect your rig :).

You got a lot of good stuff there - Nice ray structure, Clavius, Rupes Recta, Kies Pi dome (see Mikewirth's thread back a few pages), and on and on...

Thanks Rob, I'm ashamed to admit I had to go and look up that dome feature. I have much to learn!
