Season opener for me - clear skies so I set up my grab & go imaging setup in the asphalt parking lot. These are (relatively high resolution) full disks from last Sat and Sun. These are taken with a 102 mm f/7 scope with a full size D-ERF + and more than a decade old Quark. In AstroBin you will find 5000+ pixel mosaics so click on the images. For some reason they are sharper in my computer screen than viewed from AB but they are not that bad in AB either.

Thanks all! And while my Quark is not totally uniform it seems to be on the better side and calibrates well with flats. I hope it lasts a long time still.
