  1. Thanks for the comment, Neil. My intention was to show what could be achieved with a single frame with reasonable seeing conditions and a ‘fast’ scope.
    My photos tend to be a record of my visual observations.
    I have tried multiple shots and stacking using DSS but with limited success, partly due to the limited accuracy of manual polar alignment. I also think my IT skills (and my patience with computers) are not up to producing the excellent DSO images I see from other members.
