Here's a closeup of Theophilus with the ASI290mm and a 1.8x Barlow.

 

Used an IR685 pass filter as the atmosphere was very unstable but I was up at 3:30 am and wasn't going to waste the night smile.gif

Your work is inspiring Rouz!
How did you achieve that focal length?
I just put an AP 1200 and a C14 in my observatory and after a 25 year absence of serious imaging, I'm ready to get back at it.

Thanks Planetman. I was doing nothing but deep sky and then took a long break too.

 

It's the C14 with a 1.9x barlow (astrophysics) so running at about 7300mm. The ASI290 has 2.9micron pixels, that gives you more scale too.

 

If you have good data you can try drizzling.
