About this image

Today saw first light using a Daystar Prominence Filter on my old C11. I was pleased that the  setting up procedure and execution went smoothly. I’m still trying  to work out where the “sweet spot” is by working through the dial settings but expect to find that out soon with more experience. The camera was a ZWO174MM.  Enter the clouds.
