Nice sharp image Bill. Love the detail. That camera/scope combo is working well for you. Looking forward to seeing the completed project.

Finally had a
chance to get some more data.

At close to 6 hours
now. The AP1100 has performed remarkably well. Last two
sessions I was around 0.3-0.4" RMS guiding, using PEM
Pro 3 for polar alignment. More to come when the OIII data
kicks off.

Hello all,



Wanted to share a
project I finally have in flight. I swear troubleshooting
(things unrelated to my mount) this summer has been such a
time sink for me. Anyhow, here is the current state of the
data:



https://www.astrobin.com/full/358717/0/



Only 2 hours of HA
data at this point. This was taken with a Tak TOA130 with
its 0.7x reducer on it and a KAF16200-based QHY16200A
camera. The lady is a fan of butterflies so, I figured I
would get to working on this.
Individual subs came out  very good at about 1.5px or
roughly 2.5". Stars were about 0.4 eccentricity. the
mount I used for this was the AP1100 using APCC Pro, but no
pointing model (as APPM continually failed to solve even at
the Zenith via Image Link, for
some reason, and ANSVR/SGP takes way too long). I did use
PEMPro to dial in the polar alignment though. Guiding in
PHD2 was good at about 0.5" most of the night with some
fluctuations. I used 3 second guide exposures and the minmo
on the two axis was roughly
set to about .45".  SGP was the capture software, and
as always worked wonderfully (other than focus taking way
too long).



Feel free to have a
look. Hopefully the weather continues to stay nice so I can
hammer away at the rest of the data. In the end it should be
a SHO integration, which will look lovely. Maybe tonight I
can get Image Link
and APPM to play nicely. 😊



Take care and clear
skies!



Bill
