Hi ,

 

Managed to get 15GB of data this morning before the clouds rolled in and out.

Image taken from Meade LX70 -R8 scope with ZWOASI120MC and 3x Celestron barlow.

Used AS!3 to stack, Registax6 for sharpening, and Photoshop.

Thanks.  I really didn't know about ADC till today.  Now I'm considering about getting one.  Also, I managed to get some data in this morning using 2x barlow.

James,

 

I'm still in the learning stages with mine! I see you're using a ASI120MC camera so if you're using FireCapture, there is a nice ADC tuning tool available which makes it easier to get the prisms aligned! waytogo.gif I decided to get one last year because of the low altitude of the planets here for a while. If you decide on one, you won't be sorry! Clear skies..
