I’m finally starting to take images! All the setup is done. A lot of delays caused by clouds, wind, etc. I’m just finished with the Ring Nebula. I’ll be able to compare this image to my image I took years ago with the older C11 telescope. I’m finishing up the processing now, and will update this page shortly! As usual though, the clouds and wind took their toll on the moonless nights. It was hard to find good nights to image.
The first image with the new telescope is here! Take a look at the Ring Nebula. Click on the previous link for all the details about the image, but here’s a preview:
