Makes me hungry grin.gif

 

This one is aptly named.  Shot Tuesday night.  I could have used a little more time on this one.  The seeing wasn't the best either so guiding for most of the night was between .75 - 1.00, higher than my imaging scale of around .60 so it isn't as sharp as it could be.

Thanks, that makes me think I am heading in the right direction anyway!  This astrophotography stuff is addicting.

Acer,

 

I'd really like to put up my RC8 next to your MN190, image the same object and find out if the MN is the better choice. Alas you are on the other side of the big water.

Does the correction plate fog up? Are you using a dew heater? Over here it is very damp. In the morning the dew is dripping down the scope but the RC never fogs because the mirrors are so deep insde the barrels. Dew on the corrector is bascally the only thing that keeps me from getting one.

I don't use a dew heater (yet).  Iam using an astrozap dew shield and haven't had any dew problems on the corrector.  It hasn't gotten so bad that dew is dripping, but definitely bad enough where the scope itself is wet with dew.
