H-Alpha Image with DMK21-AU618

Received my new Imaging Source DMK21-AU618 camera the other day, today was my first chance to use it. There was a lot of cloud about today and I did not start imaging until 3pm which was a bit late in the day, but I am happy with the images I took.

One thing I did try was a short C mount adaptor, as usually I use a 2.5x Powermate as I thought that was the only way to achieve focus on the Coronado PST. But now the short C mount does allow you to focus on the PST without the need of a Barlow. This now means that I can image a whole solar disc by stitching together just 3 images.
