The crowd is awaiting the next image Mike
Yes well guided subs with imperfect PA would be affected by field rotation but if the PA is close I don't think you would notice it once all subs are aligned and combined
Unless the PA was waaay off.

Ok ok soon

Went out last night to tweak away with the collimation of the AG12...aaaand in the dark managed to make it worse ....so getting late and being a work night, I though aaaaah stuff it, I WANNA IMAGE! and switched to the trusty FSQ106EDX4-FLI combo. Man, this rig just works ! great responsive goto after park and silky responsive centering, dithering and autoguiding (as good as or better than the NJP) . The extra size, speed, responsiveness and beefyness of the AP1600 over the NJP was palpable The below flatline guide graph looked like this all night.

New image soon

How boring, everything is working well and quality data flows in...just kidding - great that you are well and truly back in the saddle and again rescuing ancient messengers from distant worlds by letting them safely land on your camera's CCD.
