I'm starting a new project with the recently arrived 10" newtonian from TS ( still learning to master it) and the EAF focuser. Here is the first H alpha part, probably to be completed with more subs of improved quality. The O3 and S2 will be the delicate part in order to achieve a good balance. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but the coma corrector does not seem to work as I hoped it would.
