Nothing special but this shot represents a massive leap forward for me.....its a completed test shot with all the new kit, including my new, (what i have knick named my Frankenstein's Mountster), the Gemini G41 with the Losmandy Gemini computer....i really wasnt sure i was going to be able to get it working properly.....and i blew a diode in the camera so that had to go for repair too......any way its all worked out and i havent had to spend a penny, its all paid for it self which is very uinusual in this game. :th:
Even more unusuall i fitted the mount and scope yesterday and it was clear....BTW that is really rare in the UK!!! things really were going my way!!!
This shot of the bubble is 3x900s in Ha and 10mins in red 9mins in blue and 7mins in green, no flats or darks.....conditions were quite hazy and processing quite crude.
thanks for looking.

Thanks Everyone, Im very pleased with the way its all come together..... i feel i can now make a start, next thing is to get ACP running again. I know, it has been sitting behind the sofa for ages....the missus has really been giving me grief to get rid of it :sadeyes: ...to think i nearly did :eyepop:

Good to hear you have all your kit working again. That's a nice shot for such a short exposure. Those AG12s certainly suck down the photons! I'm really looking forward to receiving mine :thumbsup:

I was at the factory the other day, i saw your AG, its the 10 you went for? youll have it very soon ;)

No, that's another IIS denizen. Mine's a 12 only just ordered a couple of weeks ago...

Ok, great choice i wouldnt do without mine....i wont be changing it antime soon, its a keeper for sure. They certainly are photon hoovers, with all these AG's about there will be no photons left for anyone else :lol:
