Images are definately improving recently. Starting to get my confidence back i think Darryl. Hoping for quite a bit better in the coming weeks. But everything will have to come together for that being so low. Thanks for the encouragement.

Not even using a ADC. Keep thinking perhaps i need one ?

Good work!

Yes, you will almost certainly see a benefit from an ADC at those altitudes!

AS/3 Does a great job of RGB align. But i suspect its not as simple as that.

That’s right! Software can only do so much. Check out this article by Christophe Pellier.

I Briefly started testing one shortly before stopping imaging over 5 years ago. i will have to brush up on it. Thanks for the link. The encouraging  thing is the results i am getting without one. Will do some more reading

Thanks
