Barry,

First off, I really like your web page and philosophy. I go to it often. I use a Q50 on a tri-stand, and utilize a Basler acA640-100gc camera. All of my pictures are from simply pointing the scope out an open window. I'm in the city and getting away is not always easy. Hopefully in a few months I'll be moving out to the country where the skies are dark and I have more time.

V/R

Terry

Even though it's on the edge of the field of view, this one came out really well, all things considered.

Sorry for hogging the space. Just wanted to put one more up. I backed off the processing a bit to keep the noise down.

Installed an azimuth brake yesterday on the little Q yesterday and tried out an SLR with expired Kodak Gold.

Nice image! I've tried coupling a Sony nex 5N to the scope, but haven't been successful yet. I'm certainly doing something wrong. Will keep at it.

No barlow, just extension tube. Then re-sized in Registax.
I know what you're thinking...Is he going to post every cotton pickin picture he's ever taken? I'm a bit obsessive right now, what can I say...

Terry, Keep posting the pictures! It has been lovely to see the continued improvement in your images. I have yet to use my Q for imaging but seeing your trials and the end results has been quite inspiring. Keep up the good work.

These last couple of shots were taken outside. For a change. I still think I can do better once I get the image stable enough to use a barlow. Right now I have to blow the image up. Like this one. Les, Ian, thanks for the encouragement and compliments! I'll keep at it.
