This is my first light with my new Explore Scientific 165 CF. I still have a few kinks to work out. I am still getting a FWHM issue producing magenta stars like I did with my ES 152 that I had to fix, but it may be my field flattener. It took me forever to finish this do to the rain we get here in Michigan with the Spring.

If this user has been harassing you, and you shadow-ban them, all their activities on your content will be invisible to everyone except themselves.
They will not know that they have been shadow-banned, and the goal is that eventually they will get bored while having caused no harm, since nobody saw what they posted.
You will remove your shadow-ban on this user, and their comments, messages, etc, will appear again on your content.
Such limitation improves the website as a whole by discouraging people from creating fake accounts to like their own content. Thank you for understanding!
