Ar12297 With The Quark 7th March

Seeing was awful yesterday, possibly the worst i've seen for 12 months, so, a different approach was needed; instead of my usual 300 frames that I capture in I captured 1500 and then stacked the best 50.  This is the best image I got from yesterday and given conditions i'm really quite pleased with it.  I've yet to have decent seeing that exploits the full potential of the Quark.  This shot was taken with the ED80, Quark, DMK31 camera and a 0.5x focal reducer to get the image scale back a bit.  Below is the coloured invert as I think this works really well with this particular image.
