shooting in daylight fairly low. IR850 Celestron 114. QHY462C.

Secondary shadow still looks offset after re collimating. Havent figured out why yet. Mirror clips were too tight. But now are set correctly.

Very nice 👍.  Difficult to get sharp images at this phase I find.

I have the 850nm filter bit have only used it on Venus, must give it a go on the moon it looks like it works well

Conditions were not great. Scope not cooled. A rush job. Another good thing capturing with a brighter sky. The IR makes the sky jet black.

On a side note. A Antares 1/30th secondary is now on its way from the states. Trying to rebuild my old 245mm Orion Newt. Cleaning the primary soon.

Btw checked out your Mars shots. great work.
