Shot between the clouds on 4-20-2021.  The sky started out  nice and clear-but the Mountain range had other ideas. Ended up packing it in after only 45 minutes-before the clouds started forming. Used the '92 Field model mounted on a Evo mount/tripod and a AWOASI178MM camera-no barlow. Each capture consisted of 1750 frames.

Thanks Terry!  I also had my C6 Sct out- the seeing was great and the C6 made the "Q" look like a ST80lol.gif .

They’re all wonderful, and I love in particular your shot of the Alpine Valley; it’s become a favorite destination of mine, and I’ll be trying for it tonight.

Thanks for sharing,

Ron

Yeah, the C-6 is a great scope! I always wished they had made a double forked version like the C-5. Anyway, great Q images!

I posted a few captures with the C6 over in the Lunar observing forum. I'll post some from Tuesday night under the Small bore Challenge 6" and under- a little later.
