Had a test run tonight, after getting the drivers for the camera sorted and the focusser on the guide scope I tried a quick 45 min RGB of the Tarantula. The pic is 15 min each of R,G,and B, registered, stretched and minor saturation boost in PI and uploaded. Not too bad but maybe slightly pushed the guiding at 15 minute subs. Overall I'm a happy chappy, now to get the time to finish my current project before adding the reducer into the equation. :)

Agreed, impressive for a test shot. Glad that down time was only for a few days.

For only 3 x 15-min subs that is pretty impressive!!

Cheers Greg, I have to say that Moravian do make a great, sensitive camera. And the change of focusser definately made a huge difference in guiding. I guess star shape does indeed affect guiding to some degree.

Me too Ray, it was still too long (lol) being over the new moon period though.
