It looks like after today it will be gone.
Hopefully something new will come along.
It was fun trying to image this daily to show everyone the progression.
Here are the last 2 images of it.

Regards

Mark

Thanks Russ.
Hopefully it will still be active.
32 days per rotation cycle???
If close to that hopefully in 12 to 15 days it will be back for round 2.


Again thanks for the comments.

No ive been using the DSI C II
The pro wont focus with thr PST due to the extra distance for the filter bar.
So ive been using the DSI C II with the PST.

Nice images, Mark.  I was a bit sorry to miss the last days of 953, but we did have a great time with my daughter's family in Iowa.

A comment for redvis - I am using the DSI Pro II.  I took off the filter bar and replaced it with a 1  1/4 inch eyepiece holder.  Focus is fine, after adding the lens element from the Meade Cemax Barlow to the camera. Again, the major issue with the DSI Pro II seems to be in handling the interlace problem - I am doing that using Picture Window Pro.

Regards,  Harold
