Although I am sure you are still feeling disappointed, you must feel somewhat relieved to see good data finally coming from the new scope?

Thanks Mike. Yep that bow shock is very faint. I might double the amount I have collected and see how that lands. This is one nice aspect of this scope, it is fast, I see why you were excited about now.

Yeah the disappointment is still there but finally getting results is easing that now. I am also looking forward to seeing how much of a difference Stefan's workmanship will make to the Wynne now too. If that allows me to use a larger sensor I'll be very happy.

You appear to be getting really good stars across your frame now though!
Thanks Colin, I usually process out the detail layers and never the colour, so as to prevent me taking it any further.

Yeah nice stars all the way out but not always. I have noted I get some distortion below 55 degrees and think this is the secondary slightly moving. Time to apply a bit move silicone to reduce the movement. It is most likely just movement in the microns.

Thanks Josh, I do like the star colour that is produced by these coatings. Very little manipulation at all.

Thanks Rodney, the interesting thing is there a many of these little objects out there. Lots to image, not all of them as nice as this though.
