No extender, had the DSI II mounted on the focuser. I've been using AviStack to process the images. This is a wonderful tool for aligning and stacking lunar images (and it's free) A very nice write-up appears in the latest Sky and Telescope. I can see craters as small as 2-3 pixels across. The pixels are ~.7 arc-seconds in size. I've got some more from this series I took Saturday night, but the forum poster would only allow 1 image to be posted ( size constraint). I'll psot some more in individual posts...
