Too late Tony. The quest for glass nirvana, fed by forum Oracles, is always with us.

amazing how discussions always end up on the type of glass in so many astronomy forums. People spend way too much time worrying about this stuff.

To the topic: thanks for the tests, Martin. It's a lens I lust over, but will settle for a cheaper Astro-Tech 130 (much cheaper!) in future.

Very curious about this camera you're shooting with though. And also curious about how you tamed that M42 core with 5 min subs and only single exposures. Your processing is very good!

Thanks Adam - as for M42, its just down to technique.

The camera is the QHY600C.
