  1. Quark Images from the UK

    Cheers Dave :-) Yes, these are stacked images. Each picture was produced from stacking 30 seconds of footage (approx 1200 frames) and selecting the best 50% in Autostakkert2. The focal length of my 120mm is f8.3, when you add the Quark (barlowed to 4.2) you get a FL of approx f/35, which seems to be ideal both for visual and photography.
  2. I've been using a Quark chromosphere now since May and just wanted to share what an absolute delight this piece of equipment is (albeit I never seem to have enough cloud free sky to get it right on band). I had been using a ST80 but felt this was lacking and not a great match for the Quark in terms of focal length. I've since moved to a 120mm refractor and hope the images show how capable the Quark is.
  3. Quark Solar Images

    A selection of images using a Quark Chomosphere, 120mm achromatic refractor and PG Blackfly mono camera.
