Ha Full Disk With The Quark - 4th October

I'm finally happy with the tuning of the Daystar Quark Chromosphere when used with my 70mm f6 refractor, so today I decided to try a full disk mosaic to see if banding issues were going to be a problem - looking at the image it can be see they are not!  This is a 24 pane image.  I really am happy with the purchase of this Quark, it certainly is a versatile piece of kit!  I much prefer the result with the 70mm f6 than the 100mm f10, just too much magnification with the larger scope, I think I will have to keep my eye out for a 100mm f7 scope and possible a 152mm f6 scope for next year for high res closeups.
