Stunning....love the framing too

Thanks Peter. This was my first target with the Esprit and it just fit on the FOV.. I took a bit of care on framing each night as I'm not plate solving yet and didn't want to chew too much at the edges 😁

Wow, absolutely brilliant.

I have never managed to pull much in the way of colour out of this one and that is as good as I have seen for colour without being over-stretched.

Really well done with that one 🙂 


Thanks Steve. I remember going through the forums here last year  to see if an Esprit 100 would work on my mount and seeing your posts on this subject. When I rang the supplier to back order  a new scope they had one in stock so I just went for it. Luckily I've got it working. 😁

Really like the sense of depth you've achieved and love the colours - excellent job!


Thanks Adrian. I am pleased with it for my first image with the Esprit although I've just read a thread above about 3nm filters and halos which are the same ones I have waiting to install in my Fw so holding my breath on that one.

Lovely colours and detail. I just tested a 3nm ha filter and no sign of any halo even on Alnitak

Many thanks and that's great to hear with regards filters as I got a full set of NB . I headed over to a thread on cloudy nights about Antilia and saw some very nice detail with ha 3nm and no halos.. Yay.

Very nice! Thanks for the image.

Thankyou and you are  welcome. It was a pleasure to get such a positive response for a first image with my  new set up.
