Is this a SW Mak? it looks longer than my 150 SW Mak, but otherwise it looks like one, smashing setup you have there and a nice photo to boot!

My 180 Mak set up to look at the moon. Note the 38mm Panoptic. Looks like a hand-grenade.

The moon must look smashing in a 180 Mak with panoptic.

My simple 8" dob  with my DIY  dewzappers. Nor really much to look at, but boy do I have fun.

And yes, the finder scope had not yet cleared up.

This was this morning while I looked at Venus and Jupiter.

That cute little Fox ? sitting on your observatory fence is probably waiting patiently to see the results of your astro-imaging session....and in particular....IC405!

P.S.  This appears to be a rare event.  Not often one sees a little Fox ? so interested in astro-imaging.

...Intes Micro M715 Deluxe on GP-DX with Skysensor 2000PC, attempting to look at the eclipse through cloud! Had some lovely views earlier on.

Getting ready for what is billed to be a clear night - eventually LOL!

C8 SCT

Looking forward to doing a dual polar align using QHY Polemaster ?

Also hope to image Uranus - I should have a pretty good shot at it just over the top of the fence in the photo.

Might capture Mars too?

Orion 60 EDF

First I just want to have a look through it as I've never done that before as it's primarily for imaging - I'll have a look at M45

Second - I might try to plug the ASI1600MM in and image M45 - bit ambitious as conditions aren't great - we'll see ?

If you don't try, you'll never know. 

Good luck

My FS128 last night (first clear night for weeks) with Celestron/Baader Binoviewers loaded with a pair of Morpheus 17.5mm and twin microfocusing Baader eyepiece holders. And one with the waxing moon in the background☺.

Nice binoviewer set up on your FS128 you got there.....

I went the cheap route with my homemade 1980 6-inch f/15 Dall-Kirkham Cassegrain bino.  Used a pair of 1979 7-21x Bushnell small lever "zoom" eyepieces with a mechanical  IPD adjustment knob under the black box.  The aluminum vertical action focusing knob is visible in the 1st. pic.

This was at the very end of my imaging session last night. Made the rookie error of not using dew heaters though so I will have lost a couple hours of data due to a frost lens. Ah well, live and learn.

Ticking over - unguided - on M45 with my Dark Frame Optics tuned Star Adventurer and Altair 60 EDF ?

So far I've got 10 min on each LRGB channel - and hope to get 30 on each as the skies look clear to the coasts tonight ?

Good luck to everyone else who's had the chance to take advantage of the clear skies ?
