First light of new telescope (300 mm)

Recommended Posts

The forecasts (including seeing from meteoblue) panned out and I had a nice first light session last night, testing my new ATM Newt 300/1500 mm (which I'll describe in another thread). Everything captured with PGR Chameleon 3 mono (ICX445) + Baader 610 long-pass filter, with SW 2x and Meade 3x Barlows, processed with Stackistry and ImPPG, scaled down to 80% for improved sharpness.

Oh yes, the last time I moved to a larger aperture was 4 years ago (to Mak 180). Can't wait for some Jupiter work!
