Stuart Thompson continues to wow audiences with his images taken with the 1/4 inch, Sony Chip driven, DMK 21AF04.AS. Here is the latest and greatest from the other side if the planet. Thanks for spelling out the particulars. Keep up the good work!



Hi ProfJohn,

Taken on the night of the 18th of August 2008 at 1123UT.

Best 500 or so frames of a 1000 frame avi at 30fps with a DMK 21AF04.AS monochrome camera for luminance, then switched over to a Phillips SPC900NC for the colour.

Taken through a Meade 10″ RCX400 @ f/6 (I left a focal reducer in by mistake), Meade 3x TeleXtender, Meade 1.25″ flip mirror.

I was really happy with these, this is probably the best one of the bunch, pity I had forgotten about the focal reducer. When I stacked the images in Registax, I resized them 1.4x (Mitchell) to increase the image scale.
