FSQ-130 images

Found some more images taken with an FSQ-130. Still, not many of these scopes in the wild, and now they are discontinued, maybe not a lot more

More there if interested.

Interesting blue halation - processing, or lack of a UV/IR filter?

Stunning images. I don't see the blue as an artefact just the colour of those bright stars.

Star sizes and colour etc are super good. High detail, almost 3D.

A good ad for the FSQ130. Its a shame it was hideously expensive.

Greg.

A very nice scope for sure and some beautiful images.

After some closer inspection I have noticed that there is some noticeable star elongation in the corners in these images in spite of images not being shown in full resolution and a 43mm diagonal sensor being used vs stated 110mm imaging circle - perhaps small pixels are really tough on optics

This guy has a lot of superb images from the FSQ130 with various cameras.

My favourites are using the FLI ML16 (KAF16200).
