Taken this morning just before dawn. Conditions were good but I left my imaging a bit too late and so only got one run before the seeing started to deteriorate.

I'm using my Lumenera LU075M at the moment, got the linux drivers to work and I'm using a modified version of the sample Linux capture program that came from Lumenera. I'm a lot happier with this camera now that I can use it under Linux and avoid streampix :-)

My firewire camera had to go back to the manufacturer, not sure if it died or if I inadvertently damaged it, but I hope to have it repaired/replaced and back in a few weeks.

10" f/6 newtonian @ f/48
Astronomik RGB filters
Lumenera LU075M @ 15fps
60 seconds each or red,green and blue

regards, Anthony

Great result Anthony! Crisp details and excellent color balance. Sad to hear that your DF-Xpress died but good to see you posting images like this from the Lumenera smile

Best regards & CS,
