Your laughter compels me to respond Paul. Lack of images to date is because of:
  • Shocking weather - barely a clear night since early Feb
  • My poor (but improving) ability to collimate
  • My perfectionism
Nothing really to do with the stray light issue which has been solved (and that I was being - as some might claim - too anal about). I'd also point out that most RCs and DKs have a stray light problem to varying degrees. Eric's recent (outstanding) image of M83 from a 20" CDK is the latest demonstration of that. It's just that I have zero tolerance for it.
