    Default Ngc 896



    I'm still trying to figure out some star elongation issues. For a while I thought it was guiding & some of it was flexure. The oag helped with that. However, I'm dealing with camera tilt and collimation as a result. The compression rings just aren't cutting it. I'm looking at some other options with scopes that are able to thread from the focus tube-f/f to the camera. Meanwhile I'm working on this target. If any of you have any suggestion/experience in apo telescopes that fully thread in the 102 mm range let me know. Thank you. This will become a full narrowband when I'm done.

    Hardware:
    Scope ES 102 APO with Moonlight Focuser
    Astro-Tech 2" FF
    SBIG STF8300M
    FW8 Filter Wheel 36 MM Baader narrowband Ha used
    Sbig OAG with ZWO ASI174MM

    That came out rather nicely, if you ask me!
