    Wow thanks Andy Thanks for having ago You are right there is so much more detail to be had. Also liking the fact you managed to bring out more star colour. I certainly do need more practice in processing Cheers Dean

    Its fascinating peoples ideas of what a object should look like. I really enjoyed reading the thread, i think it was called "am i cheating". I like Carl's version

    Thanks for you effort You have certainly pulled out more detail. Mine is also a un-modded camera. Think the long intergration time helps. Cheers Dean

    I must have got extremely lucky with mine then. If i had to choose again and what people are saying then I would choose the HEQ5

    What Mount?

    I will throw spanner in the works. I have used only the AVX mount for the past 3 years and had no problems with it personally. Really easy to set up and align etc. I cannot vouch for the other mounts tho. Dean
