with winter coming soon and a lot of big targets im testing out a new imaging platform.I attached a 200 mm old JC penny calera lens to my sxvf-h9 imager here was the result of about 3 hours exposure time.

I wish Meade or any other company would make a nice small APO refractor in a 200 mm or very close to it range for wide field imaging.

Really nice image, Mark! Too bad I don't have my old Pentax 200 mm telephoto lens. I used to have a Pentax Spotmatic II with threaded lenses. One of my daughters, when they were small, pulled the camera off the top of the chest of drawers, where it fell to the floor and broke. Later, I gave the camera and a full set of lenses to a charity place.
