That’s some lovely detail and texture!

I’ve got an ASI120 as well but cannot get it to focus with my PST. Have you had to shorten something?

Thanks guys. Its hard work trying to preserve the fine detail while processing.
I take the 1 1/4 nose piece off the camera and stick the camera straight on using elastic bands to hold it in place. U need to take out the screw that locks in eye piece and plug the hole too.
