Not a lot of proms to choose from yesterday and basically none today, although it would not have mattered as I was really shooting through tiny spots in the clouds to capture anything today.  AR2770 still looks good though quite small.

Thanks Dan!  Love this scope!  I can't remember if yours is a PT or TT 60.

Not a huge prom, but a very steady animation. Very nice presentation, tums up Warren!

Thanks John!  I liked how the prom ended up looking like two small proms crossing over each other.

Nice animation, quiescent, but nice and steady. I like the hovering bit of plasma just waiting to fall.

Nice shot of your rig,(dang clouds!) especially the tilt adaptor.( I'm still waiting for ZWO to fulfill their back-orders. 4.gif )

How did you adapt your Skyris to the adaptor and scope? It looks like I'll need a few accessories as well.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Phil!  Really didn’t have to change much to use the tilt adapter,  Just removed the eyepiece holder from the diagonal, screwed on the tilt adapter and then reattached the holder.  I did what Marty suggested to leave the screws in the adapter loose and tilted until the Newton rings were least visible and then tightened the screws accordingly.  With a Barlow and in DS mode I can still notice them in post processing even when I use flats so I assume part of that is the camera as well as the DS set up.  I don’t have much issue with them in SS mode.

Ha! Right. Just put everything away and the clouds will disappear.

 

Really nice shots.

Thanks Warren, that's reassuring. Nothing worse than eagerly expecting some new stuff and then forgetting some stupid adaptor.

Now that I know how, I just need the opportunity.

I'll keep playing with flats, and trying in post in the meantime.

Cheers
