O111 seems the real winner though in 3nm from the images I have seen.

With 5nm I don't really like to image with the full moon or with the object too close to a 1/2 or more moon. So there is that. The downside is it will require longer exposure time to compensate.

Indeed. I have the 5nm as well. Small hiccup though....the firmware of my FW-STX needs updating to support both carousels.. Hopefully I'll have the new controller by late next week
