This imag of the flame was taken with the C14 and the IMG42-40 (2048x2048, 13.5-micron pixels). That is probably the last night I'll have the camera here for imaging; it's set to go back today. It was three days of heaven!

Details: C14 at f/11, IMG42-40, Paramount ME, Hutech LPS filter (taken in heavy light pollution, under a streetlight), Optec IFW filter wheel, TCF-S focuser. A median combine of eleven 5-minute images.

This is a 40% size image. To see a 1280x1280 version:

Ron,

another great picture!

What will be the price of that camera when it comes to market? $ 20.000? More?

Looks like the C14 showed some coma at the bottom of the pic, right?

Regards
Tom
