Here's M57 I took this weekend with a TMB-229, SBIG ST402-ME, Parallax
HD250C. Not even in the same county let alone ball park as what the
two Micheals and others have been posting.
This is a 'track and accumulate' that sbig s/w supports of 10 images
each 1 minute long. The thing I am happy about is the mount could
track unguided at 1 minute even with resolution of 0.90 arc-seconds /
pixel. Last time I tried, the PE was obvious but this time I had it
I did some weird stuff in PS. I noticed the sampling had like 16
pixels / star so I digitally zoomed it by 8x in PS, messed with the
sharpening a bit and then downsized about 4x for a net gain of 4x
digital zoom. I cropped to the center. It seemed like the zoom game
Submitted for your amusement,
PS: The Mars pic was good Mike.
