Ha Full Disk With The Quark - Double Stack Single Stack Comparison - 7th June

The seeing wasn't really up to it as there is variation in some of the panels in this mosaic, and, again hadn't got my flat sorted out properly, but did get a result in the end that kind of worked!  I also took the image below in double stack mode as a comparison, but, the seeing and the flat again weren't perfect.  Shows what can be potentially achieved though.
Both images were taken with the ED80 and the PGR Blackfly IMX249 camera.  Just for good measure, below is the full disk image taken at the same time with the much smaller aperture Coronado DS40 scope at 650mm.
There is obviously much less resolution here but I find it interesting the results these three different setups give of the same subject.
