I think you forgot to post the image, Jimmy!
I was at Starizona last night and we were working on getting my RASA's first light. I am using the Atik 11000 OSC camera and we had to get an adapter made due to the difference in the threads of the scope and the camera. Last night the weather did not cooperate though, and as clouds rolled in we had just gotten to the point where we had the double cluster in Perseus in the field of view and realized just how wide the view is going to be!
It will be a couple of weeks before I can get down there again and hopefully, can get my first images.
I'm looking forward to more of your images, Jimmy!

Wow! Awesome mosaic, Jimmy.
I'm hoping my images will be half as nice as yours!
If you have any suggestions on getting the most out of the scope and chip, I'd sure appreciate hearing them! I'm a relative newcomer but have been using Hyperstar with my 1100 HD for a little over a year now. I know the 11002 chip is a lot noisier than the Sony chip in my 460. I have an AP 1100 on order and it should be here before too long.

Your pictures are so fantastic.
Is your FLI Microline 11002 OSC grade 1 or 2?

I would be interested in getting feedback on this telescope. Not so much info around on how this works in practice.
How easy is the collimation ? How long does it hold ?
It looks like you have had the scope for 2 years, so what are your impressions now ?

Wow! Those are just incredible! Well composed and well processed! I love the dual frame wide-angle shots! Who needs the Hubble?
