Thanks, well I tend to find lower hysteresis values help with 1.5 seconds exposure, with the 200pds tube on the mount the PMC loves to be nudged more frequently than with a small refractor 😊
definitely use a dark frame on your guide camera and get stars as small as poss on there as well. Yes I Am guiding both Ra and Dec, total error 90% of the time below 0.5 unless the wind blows my tube!
I’m with you, I like diffraction spikes, good enough for Hubble, good enough for me 😊

Sorry Dave. I was so overcome with the image I lost ability to type. Really nice. Sharp focus to, what with the spider flare and all. I love to see those things on the bright stars in a nebula picture. Some see them as an issue, but not me.
You do anything special to get .5” guiding? You guiding ra and dec?
