    RGB and H-Alpha

    You do not need to convert to greay scale if you just want to add a perentage of the HAlpha capture to your RGB. Simply paste your HAlpha image into photoshop as a seperate layer and change layer type from "Normal" to "Linear Dodge (Add)" and change the opacity to the percentage you want to add yo your RGB. This will add your HAlpha data to the red channel if you leave your halpha data as it is, color.. if you change to grey than itll add your halpha data to all channels.

    Oh Charl... Mars is feature poor everywhere... very subtle details in the eyepiece.

    Featureless sleeping Sun..

    Good one... although like I stayed before, it's not that easy to see such subtle detail in the eyepiece...

    When it comes to a editing/processing PC, I recommend an intel i7 3+ GHz CPU, 16Gb RAM, at least 4TB HDD... For a computer to control you telescope/aquite data... really any Laptop thats 8 years old or newer will suffice.. personally I use a Core 2 Duo 2Ghz with 3GB ram old Sony VAIO in my obsy and it doesn't skip a beat fro what it's supposed to do, namely control the scope and grab the incoming data. The only change I made to it is ad a USB3 PC express card and a 1TB SSD.
  14. Nice scope... you're in for a treat with the views through it.
