Another try from the same night as M8, this time M16 Eagle Nebula in H-alpha, 7nm filter attached. It came out really nice I think.. Scope: Skywatcher EVOSTAR 80ED DS-Pro Mount: HEQ5Pro Camera: QHY168C Filter: Baader H-alpha 7nm Guiding camera: ZWO ASI120MC Guiding scope: Panagor 400mm 16x200s exposure/ 53min total at -10°C binning 1x1 Clear sky!

Altair Astro has an inexpensive 0.8x reducer for refractors, but I had never seen any actual results with it, at least not with my SkyWatcher refractors (Evostar 80ED and Equinox 80ED), so I thought I'd get one and see. Turns out it works well with the Evostar, even giving you some advantages over the expensive matched 0.85x reducer, and it is not bad even at the corners of an APS-C sensor: So people who can't afford the SW 0.85x should perhaps consider it. It wasn't such a good match for the Equinox unfortunately. For more details and comparison with the TeleVue TRF-2008, you can read my blog post.
During recent night I've managed to take only 50 minutes of OIII in narrowband so I could add to previously gathered Hydrogen. This is more like experiment as it is my first bicolor image.

Sorry if I'm repeating a post anywhere, but I'm trying to find out if anyone has a Sky-watcher Evostar 80ED and a ZWO Electronic Automatic Focuser. Are these compatible? The EAF manual mentions a few Sky-watcher telescope ranges, but not the Evostar. I've done several web searches but can find nothing. Maybe we should have a compatibility thread... just a thought.
