Yeah!!! Now that's a torture test! Really looking forward to hearing how that goes. I'd need some bigger CWs to pull something like that off. 

Man I thought my ~70lb 12.5" load was a feat. If this works out, I'll feel even more sorry for those that bought the competitions product. 

You going to put this all on the mighty Eagle or something permanent?

If you add everything it will be close to a hunnert. The focuser itself is a chunk. Then camera, filter wheel, off-axis guider, dovetail system... it all adds up.

That looks really nice! I'm guessing the 70lbs is all in with camera, scope, etc?

It's the twin to the one we installed in Chile: http://lascampanasremote.org/observatory/

What design is this new 12" of yours going to be? Mak Cass like the previous, or something more like what the 17" uses?

Some nebulae are probably made from Velveeta cheese. Our George has named his observatory Velveeta Valley observatory since it's right in the middle of Northern Illinois cow country, complete with the smells.

I get what you mean, but its still pretty good. 🙂 

Some of the images I look at in my submission queue on Astrobin are wickedly over-processed and start to look more like colored Velvetta cheese than nebula.

This revision reveals many more stars in the void. -Best, Robert

This is the last object that I will be imaging with the 10" F6.3 Astrograph. Although the detail came out quite well, the stars were messed up by Topaz de-noise program. I may re-process this object at some point because the stars really were perfect in the original frames, but the lack of 20 to 40 hours of OIII and SII made it necessary to de-noise them.

My next scope will be a 70 lb 12" Astrograph system which will go on the Mach2 for more torture. I'm confident that the mount will handle it just fine.
