Quote:Nice images but why does your image of NGC 4565 have diffraction spikes?
Quote:Great images. I'm leaning more and more towards buying an AT65 as my next scope.
Quote:Nice pics; now some pics of your AVX? Congrats

Quote:Nice pics Jarrod. What was your opinion of the new mount, and what method did you use to polar align it( polarscope, drift align, or just the handcontrol routine)?
Quote:Good stuff, Jarrod. How does your AVX track as compare with the CGEM (I think I see a CGEM in the background in your pics )? Does the PE seem lower?

One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy.

Quote:Jarrod, first off lovely images. It looks as if the VX mount is working out well for you. I do have a question though - on bright stars in the M42 and M45 images there appears to be an artifact consisting of two diffraction spikes positioned 180-degrees from one another. I'm wondering if that is from the scope, the camera or the processing?Thanks!- Jim

Quote:Very nice pictures, you must love your G11 but you also want to have a grab and go mount. Congratulations!
Quote:Very nice images. So you had kind of a wild hair up your glass?
Quote:Looks great! Is that rebel t4 modded at all?
Quote:Looks really, really good to me. I'm eagerly awaiting my AT65EDQ which is on back order... hoping it makes it by Christmas.
