  1. Hi Chris, I'm going to try PNG here to check....I think it makes a difference but not quite like the masterlight xifs
  2. Here is my first Leo Triplet from a clear night on the 6-7th using an Esprit 120 w/ 0.77 FR and ASI071MC Pro. Integration was done on 30 x 200s lights and a library of calibration frames using PI. The JPG came out a bit noisy for some reason. I need to improve on my uploads to SGL! Feedback welcome
  3. Here is my "4 in 1" from April 2nd using an Esprit 120 with 0.77 FR and ASI071MC Pro. 20 x 200s. The second image is annotated to show the location of nova V1405 cas, which was pointed out to me by a keen and friendly person. My framing needs improving. The image was processed with Pixinsight. Enjoy and comments are welcomed. Thanks for watching, R.
  4. Hi, Please see below. Please let me know if you need more info. Kind regards, R.
  5. Hi, For Sale: Brand new, unused, unpacked ASI294MC Pro (box has been opened but all content is in its original packaging). New this camera goes for £980. If interested please PM me with an offer. This camera is a FLO replacement for another ASI294MC Pro and the warranty is non-transferable. R:)
  6. Just to let you know that PRIMALUCELAB are in contact now and will report back asap. They have managed to reproduce the issue. Hopefully there will be a fix soon. From my side, just to let you know, viewing these logs grow madly as soon as the focuser is connected, using: From a PowerShell terminal: Get-Content <file> -Wait was quite alarming R.
  7. That is what I had in mind - however, I'm skeptical of this approach as deleting logs files, while the driver is running can lead to other problems. But this is indeed the last resort option.
  8. So, I'm not going crazy then. Thanks for confirming the issue! I'm regularly deleting the files manually but this is quite annoying. The focuser software can trash the entire system if left unattended, which is normal, and I'm consideing returning and replacing it for another brand.
  9. No. That is one of the miseries. PRIMALUCELAB has created the ASCOM driver version 3 and I would guess they have somehow managed to get hardcode debugging on at a high level. But they haven't replied to my emails.
  10. Hi, I'm having an issue with ASCOM logs files with the Sesto Senso 2 focuser. The ASCOM driver does NOT have login/debugging enabled and I'm still seeing giant logs, which can be several Gb in size, after a long session. I've checked for a setting to toggle logging off in the ASCOM diagnostics and HUB tools but I can't find anything. Is anyone seeing the same or a similar issue? Thanks, R.
  11. Hi, This is my first try at the NGC 2359 and it surrounding, rich star field, which is relatively low in the sky but has it's best appearance on my skies these days. In spite of the fact the moon was full a couple of days ago and there was a lot of sky glow the shot worked out relatively well. This is due to the use of a quad filter, I suppose. I took 20x 500s guided on my CGEM-DX using an Esprit 120 + 0.77 FR and ASI071MC Pro. I'm also very impressed with the skywatcher 0.77 FR for the Esprit 120. Thanks for watching! R:)
  12. This is my latest M42 taken while the skies opened up at -5C. I used an Esprit 120 with a 0.77 FR and ASI071MCP with quadband filter. 20x500s lights using multistar on the latest beta from PHD2. The FR was too close to the sensor - I should have used the filter drawer and instead chose to put the filter inside the FR ! (again - the image looks weird here in SGL- misty for some reason)
  13. Fantastic! Could you please post an image of how you connected the reducer to the camera?
