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

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)
