Taken with a Mak 180.and asi224c. On the look out for a ADC,although most places seem to be out of stock at the moment.

A autofocuser would be a godsend,but struggling to find 1 for the the Mak.

Some nice detail there, despite the problems you are having. An ADC certainly has helped my Asi224mc images, as for the focuser. Have you got a crayford on your Mak, or are you just using the knob to focus?  i have fitted a thick Tiewrap on mine to allow finer focuser control, without nudging the tube too much.

I just have a basic Skywatcher Crayford focuser at the moment Pete.

It's the 2nd one i have brought,after managing to 'break'the other trying to fit a motor focuser to it.

I'm very reluctant to try again.lol
