That looks great! You're right, everything has to fall into place for great images (seeing, careful processing). But when it does, boy what a feeling! The Q can really produce some amazing images. And the compact package makes it even more satisfying!

That really is spectacular, Rob! Thanks for sharing, It is nice to know there is somewhere in America that doesn't cloud over the minute a Questar is set up (I'm sitting in my yard as I write adjacent to my Q which is pointed at yet another horizon to horizon cloud bank).

Excellent work! Io’s transit is very clear and very nice.
