Fabulous results here Pete! Perfectly round stars show exquisite tracking/guiding and the clarity and details of the Tadpoles is amazing! Your images are always first class, great work and thanks for sharing!

 

Best regards,
Rudy

Thank you very much, Rudy for that big compliment!

 

This is my second try on an H-alpha/RGB combination and I still have to get used to it and have find out how to make the best out of it. The IC 410 image suffers quite a bit from the thin imagage data base I had acquired. Because I use an unmodified DSLR it would help the quality a lot if I had some hours more of integration time.

 

For guiding I use the stand alone  Lacerta MGEN II and I really love it because of it simplicity and effectivity.

 

Cheers

Pete
