well i desperately needed to test a new reducer i got from Steve from myastroshop. The weather has been very ordinary and this arvo i literally only had a sucker hole to get this between showers and cloud. Taken with the 60mm Lunt double stacked DMk41 with a prostar 0.5 focal reducer sitting pretty on a titan mount...... I only got 30 seconds worth of clear cloudfree skies.
Taken with IC capture (the one from Image source) and Autostakker 2 - then colourised in photoshop. Still learning:rofl:
Anyway the main reason for this shot was achieved - i have the soft spot removed - it was a faulty reducer

Nice one Dave. I have several of these reducers and no probs may have been the seating in the housing. Still glad its fixed look foward to some more Ha.
Is it just me or is there a soft spot about a third of the way down?

:lol: Yeah I seem to see something too... :scared3:
Seriously though Dave, that's a lovely image mate, I'm glad you sorted out the problem.
