Hey guys,

 

I was pleasantly surprised when I noticed some granular details and contrast variation in my last outing. Definitely a first for me!

Full version and acquisition details here 

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Dan

Very nice, Dan! What white light filter did you use? Film or a wedge?

Hey thanks Eric! I was using the Baader wedge with the 540nm filter. Seems like a good combination. Still learning and experimenting with other combinations

Best,
Dan
