This is an image using my Lunt 40, QHY 533M camera (5 ms exposure at gain of 16) with average seeing on the morning of May 28, 2023. I am quite new to this type of imaging and invite your comments. This is my first attempt to upload an image. I hope it works!

The posting of the image worked! However, I failed to include a few details that I should have mentioned. I used an ROI of 1504 x 1504 pixels with Sharpcap, with the Feature Tracking Tool, in ROI mode using the centre of mass setting. That worked brilliantly until the mount stopped tracking when the sun reached the meridian limit. I have to say that I am enjoying this little Ha scope.
