Purchased the QHY5-III178 monochrome camera for autoguiding from Bruce of AstroFactors around the same time I purchased the Lunt 50THa and Moonlite focuser for the 50THa. Bruce suggested I try out the camera for solar imaging (my expensive-at-the-time SKYnyx 2-1M died).

 

I was quite delighted to find the new QHY camera could reach focus. I captured this data back Sept 24, but didn't bother processing because my last attempts at RegiStax had failed...it seems RS was unable to modern avi files.

 

Downloaded AutoStakkert last week and gave it a try. Very impressed with the performance of this software. Full resolution on AstroBin:  https://www.astrobin...328119/?nc=user
