This is my first shot done after stripping down the AG8, recoated mirrors and new heaters installed all over the optics...no more dew!!!

i had a slight issue with guiding, nothing too bad, guiding on an over saturated star... icon_rolleyes.gif

40mins in each RG and B

thanks for looking

thanks everyone.....i would have exposed longer, but i was still finalising the collimation up until 1ish...at about 3am the sky started to glow a little so cut it short...

you are right the scope has serious punch at F/3.8....i love it!

many thanks again......to be honest there wasnt anything wrong with the coatings....it just made sense while the optics were out to get them done...

anyway here is a 100% crop

Wow that's impressive work Peter. I've still not seen this visually.

Dark site and UHC or O111 filter. A 35 Panopptic with about a 500mm fl will show the lot. Then the bigger and faster the better to cruise around the details. It is breathtaking when you see it. I sold the Genesis to Richie but the little Pronto shows the whole thing very well. Not, however, quite like this!!

Sorry for the digression, Peter.

Thanks Olly. I'll give that a go over the coming month. Just keeping an eye for a secondhand 2" OIII.
