Wow! I would be concerned if this happened to me...as a certain place (can't say it because of antiquated allowed words), would have frozen over and 'the end' might be nigh! lol.gif

Can I suggest that the seeing was 11 out of 10?

As is the processing. Just amazing. As someone just pointed out, this is the pinnacle now and you can do no better.

I will buy your telescope for €5000. Just fax me your bank details and we can close the deal. Many thanks, Kev

No no no! This is the best he'll ever get. Anything from here on in is going to be a disappointment. To avoid future disappintment he should sell me his telescope now. C'mon!!

Gosh that's superb!

 

Presumably: RGB filters, no ADC, Hong Kong location, right?
