Hi Paul, Great shot. Is that a mono camera?? If it is, how many frame or seconds with each filter?? Also do you use/need an atmospheric dispersion corrector?? I do not know why, but I heard with a mono camera you do not need one like you would if you have a color camera.
Thanks for sharing, Joe

Thanks. Nope, I don't use an ADC. I have one on my color camera which I seldom use. The RGB filters I typically shoot 6000 frames at about 240FPS per filter. I stack 700 out of the 6000 for each color then combine them in Winjupos.

I was expecting much worse from "below average seeing" in your particular neck of the woods. These actually seem quite good to me.

If you could have seen the image on screen, you'd know what I meant. I'm happily surprised that it cleaned up so well.
Off to do it again.
