Nice and sharp. Colour balance is a bit off, but that can easily be sorted out with curves. A Barlow could be used to increase the image scale, perhaps. The AS I120 works best around F/20 in my experience.

Good advice there from Michael, when processing in Registax, use the autobalance feature, the colour should come right.

Cheers

Thx Michael   have got a 2.5 powermate but was not sure if it would be to much so didn't try it but maybe if get good conditions might be worth a try then  is curves the histogram setting I had a look but worried about moving about it thx again

You could try the PowerMate, but F/25 may be a bit much. I tend to use my TeleXtender 2.0x. I use curves in the colour menu in GIMP, basically this allows changing the relative brightness of the R, G, and B channels, along with options similar to gamma correction. I do not know what the equivalent in Photoshop is called.

Thx for the advice all   just used the colour balance in registax only the auto setting though and it changed it a little is this going in the right direction for getting a more natural colour

thx
