Perhaps I'm getting too hung up about imaging at F7, but where i live the conditions are rarely good so need to capture as much data as i can on the very few clear nights that i get.


I have sold the ODK and so instead of imaging at f6.8, I am now imaging at f7.9 with a 152mm refractor :shock: My typical sub lengths are the same regardless of whether I am using my Taks at f3.9 or the TMB at f7.9....... 30mins for narrowband subs, and then between 10m and 30m for luminance and RGB subs, depending on the target.
