Yes, indeed.  And you don't need a C14 to get great, detailed images either.

Well done!

Thought I’d share some results with the vintage AP130 EDF on Mach1GTO and my new QHY5III485C OSC CMOS planetary camera.  First time I’ve tried OSC, not too bad for the north shore of Long Island   

Used a TV 5x Powermate barlow for an efl of f/30, around 3900mm! The seeing was unusually steady during the captures, best I’ve seen in quite a while   

Captured 5000 frames and used best 75% in Autostakkert3 and then AviStack for wavelet filtering.
