All I can say is that I want one!! Lol
That would be an absolutely incredible view. I would love to see that. “Dome land”, the Hortensius, Milichius, Tobias Mayer dome field must be spectacular! Apollo 11 landing site and on and on. I would be in Heaven.

Hi Jim,

You should see what this scope does when aimed at the Moon on a still night. 1000x and still not enough.

How long were the subs? Do you need a 190 point model because of the fl?  Would a smaller model, modeled around the object work as well?

Hi Astronuts,

Had a couple of clear nights last week, enough to shoot some images with our 17" Astrograph using the venerable and old STL11K (I call it the noise maker). With 9 micron pixels it's a great match for the 17" F8 scope. There is about 5 hours of image, stacked and lightly processed in MaximDL, unguided with APCC/APPM modeling. No need to guide any more even with this long focal length.
