    New Observatory and first light images

    I recently completed a new observatory and have had time to take three images, all acquired, calibrated and preprocessed using AA5 of course (Photoshop for post processing also)

    I upgraded to the latest AA5 camera control interface too and wow, the new dither guide and multitasking works perfectly (Thanks Fabio ).

    Mike,
    Good to see your images here.
    I agree, I think AA5 punches well above its weight.

    Hi Mike, those images are very sweet. I like the combination of the UK based equipment - not one I've seen before but it works very well indeed. Excellent image processing as well.
