the 14in would be awesome for planetary, then a good fov with the hyperstar (as you know). The dual use makes it tempting. If I am ever able to get one, I'd just go for the C15 and CGEM dx package. Then I'd have 2 mounts. I'm looking forward to seeing your results with the CCD.
You might prefer the C11, the C14 is really big and needs a bigger mount. Maybe the EQ8 will be great for it, time will tell

Very nice work.Good amount of detail for such short subs.
Tracking but not guided?
Thank you Baz And yes, tracking ( adaptive king rate with a 6 stars modeling on the Gemini I, 3 on each side of the Meridian ) but no guiding. I tried 2 minutes, tracking was good, but the images were too bright and stars were burned out. The mount is a Losmandy titan by the way, pretty good with some tweakings

Awesome shots TC ! You should be making your own book for production with the setup you have with all your wonderful images for examples !
Haha, thank you Ron, but I don't think I have enough material to do that just yet Maybe one day, after my job's retirement, who knows IMAGE LINK: http://farm6.staticflickr.com …67080977_5697213ded_o.jpg Click the picture for a 100% version
Here is another version, with smaller stars and different processing.
Clear skies !
