Hey all.  Been a quite a while since I posted anything.  I love this forum best of all....  but don't post usually because of image size restrictions.  Will try to do it anyway more often. 

 

Here on CL, with a lot of help from my friend and mentor Marty (MalVeauX) is where I have learned....  well, almost everything over the last few years.  

My preferred processing software for stacks is Astra Image which I have learned on my own over the last couple of years.  I love it.  I also sometimes use IMPPG which occasionally works better (and faster!)

 

Some tech data.  I used AS!3 for stacking and Astra Image for processing.  For the 3 piece mosaic shot with a 1.5X barlow I used ICE for the stitching.  Other details on images and Astrobin

 

May 28th, 39.5 % Waxing

Those are some pretty nice images Mike, particularly for a 120mm scope!
