I bought my tubes as part of the order for my filter wheel (www.tru-tek.co.uk). He sells them with the correct thread for my wheel.

Mine is now made of 3 sections, so I can take a section out (or 2) as desired.

ok, alright seeing conditions tonight sat 5/10 or 6/10.

so i have videos of jupiter to compare.

5 (raw mode), 10, 15, 20, 25 frames per seconds

it started to lose frames @ 25 fps

Also, i had to load the original toucan pro II binaries back in to get it to work ini raw mode, leaving it as a 900NC and trying to use raw mode did not work!

I tried to get similiar look and feel, so some have varying exposure and gain.

All taken over 90 seconds

I have only done quick registax processes for raw mode and 10fps. With heavy wavelets. I am tryinig to keep everything pretty consistant

So the results so far, with more to come later today

The filename will give you details of stacksize, time etc

the 10,15,20,25 are, the raw 5 fps (one on the left) had to have the old driver and binaries loaded back in to get the raw mode to work
