First test with the new telescope

Postby TareqPhoto » Thu Jun 04, 2020 10:38 am

First test ever with my new scope, GSO 6" F/4, the collimation is not perfect, and the balance is also not good, no polar alignment as i was in hurry, but i wanted to see if the mirrors are not good or just normal quality acceptable anyway.

Also it is a test for my latest camera, ASI178MC, not sure if those are good examples to judge, but i feel/think that the scope is good enough, the more care and better collimation i can do the better results i can get, so i will be patient with it.

First one is RAW16 mode without filter, second also no filter at RAW8, the last two are with Baader Neodymium Moon&Skyglow filter, third is at RAW8 and last is RGB42 mode.
