Just a quick image session last night, really to try the collamation as i never done this before. NGC7000 10 x 180 unity gain plus 5 darks for the amp glow with the ZWO ASI 294MC Pro. Do i need to do any more collamation wise? large.QUICK_PROCESS__NGC7000.jpg.7f1e48fafc69a4f9090bdbeb9e8cc0a1.jpg

I would compare to other images of the same scope , small stars look to have a double spike , centre of large stars look saturated but not seeing a comparable image before of this scope hard to tell Alec .

I did this image before collimating and you can clearly see the stars to the left are elongated before adjustments. One thing I’ve not touched is the tilt on the focuser. Only did the spider at the front first then, tilting the mirror
