Taken recently, 29th dec Just 1 min 30 secs, the last 30 secs badly dim as i had gain on max with a falling brightness as the mist just killed the capture as it went a long, Meade 8" SCT DFK. 3x TV barlow. I rushed focus because i could see it coming. This weather is Naff, i want to try my 12" spx at considerably higher power, just cant get the chance. Will be getting my old 10" Europa back soon, way hey, i loved that scope so portable ( compared to the 12 ) the optics set are darn good. Happy new year to all. This little meade is now for sale

Very good detail consideing the weather challenges you had to endure. I look forward to seeing what the 12" will do. I hope you get better weather soon being that I enjoy your lunar and planetary images very much.
