More of a date marker for me than an image for you I'm afraid :)
Got myself another camera. This is from an ATIK 11000 mono.
NGC-6188 .. 4 x 15minutes Ha subs.
Added a quickey with a touch of colour.
Tak FS-102@F6 = FL of 612mm.

For $6,000 it looks like a bargain compared to other brands.

Awesome, congrats, and happy days! :)

I've enjoyed the 11000C very much, it truly is a great camera. I may go w/ the mono too. Enjoy!

Nicely done Robin same nice crisp clean results I've seen from others with the Atik cameras

Cheers guys, nothing like a new toy to keep the interest levels up :)

Wonderful! Great large format image! Next level up :)

Are you going to try it on the RC, Robin?
28-05-2012, 04:41 PM
I'll swap it in for a look this week Rick but my OAG has t-thread fittings so there will be an issue there for sure.

whoo, nice image from a nice camera Robin, the Horsehead would be a great challenge with this Id reackon it'd knock the horses shoes off , Envy ! !

Some well depth at last :)
I got a few subs tonight and it's pretty sad really. Coma all around it and it's worse where the focuser sags but you could crop it out. Here's a quick M20 with 6x300sec Lum and 3x150sec RGB. I got no darks/bias for the temp it's running at tonight either. And the t-threaded oag will have to go looking at that flat :)

Thanks, Robin. Maybe I should stick with my little KAF8300 on the RC10!

Nice, you must be stoked! :)
Uh-oh... I was hoping to test my RC8 + Canon 5DmkII. This doesn't bode well!
Perhaps I'm mistaken, but I thought that RCs are meant to suffer from field curvature rather than coma...?

Robin - Good to see you got the FW and OAG sorted looking forward to seeing more hot shots in the future.

It's definitely curved but it looks like coma to me. Here's a ccdinspector 3D plot of the Lum in that M20 shot.
Other plots tell me to check tilt and collmination as well.
The problem was never plugging the oag in, it was the size of the hole in the middle.
I'll need an atik or sx oag to get the size up but it looks like it needs a flattener as well so they might not fit in the path length.
I'll have to do some googling :)
An adapter for the FS-60 should be here next week so except rain :)

Worth checking on QHYCCD forums if you haven't already done so.
