Thank you-everyone! It's nice to get out with the "smaller" scopes-once in a whilewink.gif .

Great ones Todd! I'm still impressed by that NexImage5. On paper there should be no contest between it and the ZWO. Maybe the difference shows up at larger scales, I don't know. I like what I'm seeing though! V/R Terry

Thanks Terry!  You can see that the Ni5 produces a slightly larger image(first two photos) than the ASI178MC. No barlow was used. The really only downside to the Neximage5 is that the fastest capturing is only 52 frames per second. The Ni5 is only USB 2.0.  I think the Neximage10 is USB 3.0. I've used the Ni5  with my C6 SCT and I think the Ni5 is still better than my ASI120MC -S or the ASI178MC.  I posted my results for the past years in the Small Bore Challenge- 6" and under(forums). Got some super images of Saturn, Jupiter and Mars using the "lowly" Neximage5  "Clear Skies!" Todd.

Thank you- rcwolpert & Terra Nova!     It's quite fun and challenging- to see what you can capture when using a 3.5" scope!
