Thanks Roberto. New refractor arriving tomorrow - Sharpstar 61EDPH - then I'll be able to do some real widefield stuff.

I have done this with DSLR and Ha RGB so will have to see what a combined image looks like, a lot of stars in this one and nice colour shading,

Very nice Duncan, that combination seems to be working well.

Not sure about the Sharpstar, hope it works out.  It’s a doublet so I assume you’re getting the FF corrector/flattener to go with it ?  I’ve seen some very good images from the Redcat but even with that I have QC concerns.

Thanks Robert. Yes I'm getting the reducer/flattener. Should arrive tomorrow, we need some rain!)
