Mak180Pro First Light , he deserved better. . . .

Having sat staring at him for a week now I thought it high time he got pointed at something . . .

Got half way through sorting the focus motor before realising that I need a new bracket to fit the Revelation focuser , must sort ASAP as I've got too used to the luxury of remote focusing , and I need to get out of the biting winds ......

Grabbed just 10 cloud marred frames as he decided to get all shy as soon as I got set up .



1000D + Mak180Pro + ND3.8.

1/500s @ ISO 100 , 10/10 , Reg 5.1 , Gimp2.8.

Looking forward to a nice 'blue' day to try again . . .

Details are coming through even with the clouds. Looks very promising Steve.

The detail in the small area is quite amazing!

Looking good Steve. You're getting impressive focus and resolution. I am sure that scope will produce excellent images as soon as the clouds leave.
