Inspiring. I dream of having 25h to spend on any object after this winter of miserable imaging.

Thanks everyone for the great comments!
Alex, I'm very satisfied with the Planewave. I think it's a great scope.
Keith, some of the data is from 2011, I just added the 2012 data to it. I know what you mean about a bad winter for imaging. This has been the worst winter for me.

Thanks
Bill
