Just bumping this up and I wanted to ask for some links to images taken through the MN190, or other Mak-Newts used for imaging. I have been doing alot of imaging lately using my new ZWO ASI1600MM cooled camera on the MN190 and am pretty pleased with the performance of the Mak-Newt. It's a good match for the ASI1600 chip and pixel scale, and is giving me great resolution. Importantly, the ASI1600 chip is a new generation CMOS device with high sensitivity and extremely low noise, making short exposure imaging, and video imaging, pretty easy for most of us. I am not an expert at imaging by any stretch but I do enjoy it, and this is my first serious astro camera after moving up from my old Canon 450D dslr. I have some images taken through the MN190, using both the ASi1600 and my Canon, in my public gallery on Astrobin, if anyone wishes to have a look they are here:
The top couple of rows of the gallery thumbnails are all ASi1600 test images through the MN190, with many of those lower down taken with my cooled full spectrum DSLR on the MN190. To see larger images just click on the thumbnail to open the description page for that image and click of the image again to go to full screen mode.
I must admit the stock focuser concerns me, but I am still using it to produce these images, but I think I will swap over to a Moonlight now that Ron has got the correct adaptor for the MN190 in production. Can we get some feedback from the guys beta testing that adaptor - Ron had indicated to me that there were some in the hands of testers now.
Remember, if your imaging through your Mak-Newt, send us a link.
