    Best of luck with the new laptop Dave , hope it works out ok. Shame you cant utilise a scope trolly for your backyard, I have a JMI one that I use to roll out my setup from the backyard shed onto a concrete pad.
  4. QHY168c test images

    Thanks Ray....I was stoked in the last couple of weeks of stringing some nights together, couple of hot nights with the coolers struggling to get the temp down to -10. I finally brought a sub to Pixinsight, I really like it , besides the overblown module names a basic processing workflow is easy to follow . A LMC pic ..... https://www.astrobin.com/full/328325/0/

  6. QHY168c test images

    Hi couple of images of the Horsehead and Eta Carinae nebula using a QHY168c OSC cmos camera. Second night out with the camera with a clear night but full moon, but still happy with the end result. Shot through a little 70mm triplet refractor at F/4.8 using the dedicated flattner/reducer.

    Greg that is awesome....if possible could you describe how you get the brighter stars to look the way they do with the actions. Beats me how it's done, the before image is basically how my stars look in your second image they look spectacular
