    This is an image of M42 taken at SRO in California and processed using Pix Insight. All data was acquired using ACP/MaxIm over Jan/Feb of 2017 with exposures at 120s, 300s, and 600s. RGB data in 300/600 only where luminance was all three. Total usable images equaled 31.73 hours. Telescope is an OGS 12.5" RC with a STX-16803 SBIG camera mounted on an AP3600. Image posted is 75% of full scale.

    Thanks for looking.

    Thanks Bill. That was from the STX-1680 you repaired for David at SRO. Been working like a charm ever since. Lookout for my buddy's STXL-16200 coming to you soon. The one with the shutter problem..
