Fabulous images! Can you tell us more about the scope? No barlow?

Those images are quite excellent!  The processing is also very good, allowing fine resolution to be appreciated, but without the overbearing look that can often happen in lunar images.  Well done.

Hmm, I was expecting a more portable 400mm design...grin.gif

 

In all seriousness, that telescope is absolutely stunning in its (probably rather deceiving) simplicity. bow.gif

That's an amazing scope, as much a work of art as ingenious engineering. The mirror must be pretty good, too. Congratulations!

 

I (we) look forward to seeing a lot more images from it.

 

Are you by any chance actually in Slavutych?

 

Best,

 

Bob

Amazing imaging, super sharp and contrasty.

 

This is the first light of this scope. I hope it will be even better smile.gif

 

And an even better image of the actual scope used! Just the right amount of precision optics with heavy steel machinery. What focal length does it have? How do you point it?

Just lovely. I would be happy to see a video of the moon through your scope to see how steady your seeing is when imaging the moon.

Superb captures there! You should be proud of what you have achieved with your equipment and processing. Some of the best I have had the privilege of viewing. Keep up the good work.  Larry
