Rog , was this excellent image taken with the Atik 16HR ?

Its taking me a bit of an effort to get the best from this camera , need to try longer subs.

Sorry John , yes it was mate ,the camera performs well even at 45 sec subs before i guided i had good results , a lot does depend on processing John, the camera will do the work for you , i had alot of practise using lower cost camera,s , where i had to learn the best ways of getting the data out of it, it will come in time , and anyway you are getting some pretty good results

That's a stunning shot Rog, full of lovely detail and texture. A beautiful image.

Very well done.

Absolutely first class Rog. You should have had that one handy for Sir Patrick, I am sure he would have been impressed with that.

Ron. :D

You said it was likely to be a 'goodun' once you'd processed it, and it most certainly is. Very nice indeed!!

So glad I managed to covert you to guiding and unbinned images. :D

Keep up the good work Rog 8)

I've been nagging him for months Dave! Colour next then Rog!!! Seriously though, that is a marvellous image, very delicate and gossamer like with perfect little stars.
