Those photos are absolutely spectacular. How much aperture were you using?

The manufacturers web page also shows the author's pictures with the scope listed as a 152MM apo.

The camera is now available in the US:

Nice images.

A few questions:

Did you have any contact with Moravian customer service or other company representative? If so, how was your experience?

Were you able to determine how fast the G4-16000 cools down?

Did you use Moravian's Scientific Image Processing System (SIPS) software? If so, do you have any feedback on that?
