Hi All,

Deep in the throes of a heat-wave here, but y'all convinced me to do a peek and tweak with one of the
PSTs this afternoon (a final hurrah, then tomorrow it's back to a 7day/12hr work-week... sigh). tongue

The high level of humidity and attendant haze disuaded me from setting up for Ha, and opted to
try the wider-band CaK.

Here's the result:



Image details: Off-the-shelf (unmodified)CaK PST with modified nose-piece Meade DSI Pro (love that
little DSI Pro!):. Disk exposure 0.0028/ Prom exposure: 0.0625, processed with ImagesPlus and combined
with Adobe PhotoShop CS.

Cheers,

Paul
