    Looks like my new interim set up will be a PL16803 and an OS RH200. I now the 42mm image circle is small for the camera so i set about reviewing some images produced with this set up.
    Found this out there on the web data courtesy of Bert Van Donkelaar.
    17*16 minutes in N2, O3, S2 it reads.
    It was also a treat to process something from the southern hemisphere., i do feel i am missing half the fun and would love to get my hands on some more data from down there :)

    It's not a perfect partnership but seems to be a workable one until i such time i can justify the 300 or a nice long FL scope. In real use would likely crop 10% around edges to sort slight elongation in stars and overlap mosaics by 20% for safety.

    Rev B - LIttle less sat and a small HDRMT to kill some of the brighter areas a little.
