Star resolution in a 10 minute exposure (Re: New file uploaded to ap-gto)

Roland Christen

Hi All,

This is a screenshot of star resolution on a night of good seeing using PHD2 Lowpass2 algorithm with the Mach2 encoder mount. Out of the 8 frames that I shot, 6 of them reached this level of resolution, which is about 1.8 arc sec. That is the limit of resolution of the 130mm aperture.
