Still a gradient on this one but couldnt resist posting it.

Got the scope last Saturday, got a wireless game controller to properly align the mount on Sunday and took this Sunday night. Moon was up and it was hazy and I'm very excited at what I might get with this new setup.

Thanks for looking.

Subs were 5 mins L, 3 mins RGB, about 12 of each.

Les - Thanks so much for that tweak it makes a massive difference - I am getting the feeling I am a small step away from being to process my pics down nicely but gradient removal seems to be the last piece of the puzzle.

Thanks to you others too, can't wait to get outside under the stars with it again.

The one thing that made a big difference in my images was when I made a light box for my scope it removed Dust and Vingetting from my images another thing was Gradient Exterminator as I have a lot of light pollution in my Backyard location

Keep up the great work
