Sweet setup Leo! Looking forward to your first image with it. I haven’t seen that Tak before, very nice.

Have fun!

Thanks Rowland … i must check what Mike say about LocalField and OUT mode because this is one of rare example of camera that working against gravity moving OUT. If something is wrong i can now have mode to check and fix.

First light with my portable setup … i tested changing to RoboFire routine for IN focus direction.
8 sub of 180s for each channel RGB (24:24:24). Target was low but … i love this telescope !

Great shot Leo, nice star color and a nice wide field to get all of the Rosette. You will have fun with this setup!

Cheers,

Thanks Rowland … i shot with a sky with a little fog … i have a tremendous blue bias but i fixed it.
I hope to use it this summer in high quote Alps.

Great image, Leo! It is nice and sharp, with excellent color balance and saturation.

Sweet setup, too. Glad you are enjoying the new scope.
