    November is always terribly cloudy here, but we had a couple of hours of clear skies last night. I managed a quick test of the new SBIG StarChaser SC-3 guiding an STX-16803 and FW-7 on a Ceravolo 300 mm f/9 Astrograph. This is a simple RGB shot with only basic processing.

    That is an outstanding image Doug and excellent representation of how well the StarChaser manages guiding. Any idea if the StarChaser SC-2 and SC-3 will be available through TheSkyX Pro at some point?

    Thank you. Yes that is not bad for less than an hour's work (clear skies were brief!).

    Check with Richard Wright - I believe he has already integrated support for the new generation "DL Imaging" drivers.

    Also the drivers include ASCOM support.
