I can not tell you how happy that makes me feel Logan.
It is surprising how you focus on something it can come to pass.
Excellent news.
Congratulations.
Alex

Thats great Logan.
So who did you say sponsored you

What a wonderful thing to do...so do they sell these cameras? maybe you could put in a good word for me when I order maybe

Dont forget to tell the press

So when do you think you will get to image from your back yard or a trip planned?

Also I hope to see a youtube video how to set it all up...actually I will make I list of the little things I need to know

Attention to little things that one can take for granted like showing what plugs into what ... does your sponsor have a t shirt? if not print one with an iron on and impress them by wearing it in your movies star shows and next press conferernce etc.

A mate of mine used to write and produce a motor bike magazine in fact I helped him get it off the ground. The original Australasian Dirt Dike Magazine.

We had this attiutude if someone helped they got good free publicity and it was not long before folk rang him to test their latest bike

All I suggest is make sure they get exceptional value for their help.

WOuld you test scopes say if someone sent you a 150 mm tripllet...you see where it can lead is all I am saying.

I got it.
On the t shirt you also put a photo that you took of the Eagle Neb...perhaps one of the most published photos around.☺

Hi Logan

I also just placed my order for a 1600mm but I got the 8 filter wheel with zwo LRGB with astronomik Ha and O3.

Im going to move off OSC 071 and give mono a try. If I can produce outstanding images on the 071, I wounder what I can get with mono.
