Hi all,

 

I took these shots on Sunday afternoon.  We didn't get the clear skies promised, but we had about 30 minutes where the sky wasn't opaque.  It was a chance to test out the new-to-me ASI178MM-Cool I bought last week in the CN classifieds.

 

I think the difference is pretty dramatic...the resolution improvement is dramatic vs. my ASI224MC.  I love that camera, but I think that for H-Alpha which is the definition of narrow band, monochrome is the way to go.  And I think the ASI178mm is a good match for the SolarMax 60.  I'm not used to liking my images better at full resolution, but these shots really do look better viewed on a large screen.

 

Clear skies,

Damien
