Nice, Dan. Can't wait to see more from that Mewlon and the 20D.

Witch Head Nebula

Really like the "ghostly" effect this shot has. Nice work on a difficult subject.

Dew Not heater straps vs Kendrick?

Posted By Jeff Poplin

We have one on the club's C11 along with a DewBuster controller. I've only seen one dripping wet night that the corrector dewed over. This was caused by inexperience with the new setup more than a failure of the strap/controller. Since then, great results.

M35 & NGC 2158

Posted By Jeff Poplin

Very nice, Ivan. When I concentrate on 2158, I get almost a 3D effect. M35 practically floats out from the screen. Cool shot.

Of course, that could just be from lack of sleep or my dirty eyeglasses... 8)

Thanks for posting.

The Owl Nebula and M108

Posted By Jeff Poplin

Great shot, Ivan!

Was this taken on the same cold, windy night? If so, I'm even more impressed!

Eagle Nebula

Posted By Jeff Poplin

Very nice, Ivan. Continually amazed at what you are able to do in less than ideal conditions. The camera is certainly a "keeper".

Thanks again for sharing.
