    M13 and its Galactic Area with the G4-16000

    Thanks Paul. About the diffraction, maybe the optics of the TeleVue or maybe the CCD chip of the G4-16000. I had these diffraction on the fits images. Florent

    M81 with an Altair RC10

    Great image ! The second has a very good colors but the first has more details. But the both are well defined. Your RC works fine Florent

    SH2-171 / NGC 7822 with G4-16000

    Thank you Pieter. Oh yes, the new imaging train is solid as a rock to support the big G4-16000 and the FLI ATLAS focuser. The TeleVue NP101is works perfectly now.

    My first Saturn & Jupiter

    Thank you so much I love the Mak scopes ans i love this Mak. Outstanding optics and a very small shifting. A great tube. I've got an ES 2x focal extender but not used at that time because the atmospheric turbulence was too high the last summer with the planets at a low altitude.
