I've just managed to get hold of an AsiAir Pro. First impressions are just spot on. I had a little concern when it arrived as I wasn't sure if it would handle a USB hub. Much to my surprise it did!

Happy New Years Everyone, On December's Supermoon evening, December 3, 2017 at about 9:56pm, the seeing here in Southeastern Pennsylvania was excellent (4/5 - 5/5 Sky clock). I decided to turn my Meade LX50-10" SCT to the Ice Giant Planet Uranus. After doing quite a bit of research in imaging the 7th planet, I used an ASI120mm camera with a Baader 610nm Long Pass Filter. I choose not to use a Barlow since from historical experiences with Mars I find I obtain small but sharp results without one. I acquired 39minutes of video at a frame rate of 4 fps with a gain of 73 collecting 10,012 total frames. Using AS2 I stacked the best 3000 frames using a 1.5 drizzle then processed further using Registax 6 and PS5. My question is did I capture any details on the planet? Using WINJUPOS and Moon positions, I also show the orientation of the planet at the time of imaging. The colored image is just a combination of the Near IR610RGB inserted in place of the overexposed Uranus showing the moons. Just seeking anyone's ideas. Thank you so much for looking, All my best, Kevin
