Superb image... bravo!
I will be interested in the full report on the Ovision upgrade. My G-11 could use a little help.

Leo Trio - from Nocturne Observatory

Thanks for the comments, folks. I was pretty happy with the color on this image. Its always nice when the color data actually adds to the image instead of detracting from it.
Cheers,

East to West drift while guiding?

Posted By Tyler Allred

Floyd, Are you dithering with the guider between frames? In theory, that should introduce random errors (at least over the long term) but it could add up to some drift in the short term. Its just a thought. Otherwise, if the guider is working correctly and sending corrections, the only solution is flexure. You could try a very long exposure to see if flexure shows in the image. It is often most pronounced when crossing over the zenith with a GEM. That is my 2-cents worth.
Cheers, and good luck,
Tyler

M106

It looks good to me. The main thing is that the processing looks very smooth and natural, which make the image very pleasing.

Beautiful work Greg! I think I like the added Ha version best, but both are very nice.
