Thank you. Celestron 8SE, ZWO ASI224MC camera, UV/IR Cut Filter.

Firecapture -Autostakkert!3 -Registax 6 - Lightroom, in that order. 

Used a 2x Barlow for one of the pics.

Thanks Darryl. Coming from someone who himself produces some VERY AWESOME images, I take that as quite a compliment.
It's true what they say - seeing IS everything (as long as your settings are right).
Next project is a moon mozaic for me. I'm thinking of using a f/6.3 focal reducer on my scope, and no Barlow. That way,
I can grab a wider area of the moon each time and overall have less pieces to assemble in the mozaic. Given the seeing I
get here (and these latest images are from the best seeing I've er, seen, in SIX MONTHS!!), does this sound like a reasonably
achievable goal to your distinguished self??

Ha-ha Kevin...any Moon mosaic you achieve will be infinitely better than anything I've done - I've never attempted one tbh!

 

Embarrassed to say that all our Moon shots are done as an afterthought from planetary imaging when we are about to pack up! ;)

 

Good luck with your "project" & look forward to what you might achieve! :waytogo:
