A recent run of clear evenings have been devoted to testing as the moon has been too much in evidence for much serious imaging. I'm finding MetaGuide more useful than PHD for getting some useful feedback on what is happening with the guiding. Unfortunately obtaining perfect collimation on the Newtonian is proving difficult so I'm now convinced that my rebuilt spider does have a fundamental flaw which will only be solved by another rebuild; this time with a bit more care I hope. I'm beginning to suspect that the CLS filter, though indispensible, might be introducing some slight distortion to the field positioned as it is within the camera though I haven't tested this seriously. Last night I did make an attempt at IC 443 ( The Jellyfish Nebula in Gemini) before the moon became a problem but the transparency wasn't too good and the final image was a bit of a processing excercise. Details: Megrez88 apo + TS. 12x 8 minute exposures @ iso800 with CLS in DSS, CS2 & Photobrush.
