I do actually have a mono camera and filters but haven't really used them (yet) as Imaging with the DSLR is much more simplistic, or so it seems. If and when I actually give NB a concerted attempt I may find that it is no more complicated than OSC. The biggest obstacle, in my brain, is the processing involved with NB and whether I could be bothered spending hours teasing out the best possible detail etc. As it is, I do minimal processing of my OSC images, but I know that I could get better quality if I learnt the ins and outs of Pixinsight, Gimp or similar.

Tonight is so much better than last night , guiding numbers are good 0.65 to 0.70 arc sec total ( last night 1.20 to 1.45 ) and guide Star HDF is 3.90 to 4.50 ( last night 5.10 to 5.90 )
The downside is there intermittent passing high cloud , so only capturing 1 in 3 good clean subs. Forecast is to clear by 9.00pm to midnight but I can see high cloud way back to the mountain ranges in the south west which are 40km to 60km away. Pushing on regardless
Anybody else out ?

I thought tonight might be an unexpected imaging night as it was clear when I thought it was supposed to be cloudy. But there's been high cloud blowing in so I didn't bother setting up. I had a good run last night though, got my OAG up and running and guided at ~0.65" from then on. Seeing was great too, whereas it had been poor over the weekend.
