Afternoon All, After what seems like too long I have finally managed to do a bit more serious Astro imaging and revisit the forum (been over 2 years IIRC), as it turns out having two children under 5 and UK skies is not a good mix for a hobby in astronomy, especially if you value sleep. Anyhow in those 2 years of downtime have taken the time to tear down the EQ6, overhaul the bearings, take out some backlash, re-grease with lithium grease, flush out the cobwebs from the roll off shed, clean out the MN190 (also infested with spiders worryingly), retake darks and bias files and overhaul the usb/power cables to the scope. Finally after all this and some minor teething issues I got a few clear nights between Nov 2017 and Jan 2018, so I decided to have a go at NGC1977 - The Running Man Nebula in Orion . 4 Hours of Luminance at with 300s subs 1 Hour each of R,G,B in 300s subs Atik383L+ mono (at -20) and MN190 Stacked in DSS and Post-Proc in PS Image reduced by 50% to fit to screen better Really happy being able to get back into this again Keith
