Very nice photo of Bodes, Paul.
I too have an ES 102 and waiting for my EXOS2 mount(backordered).
Cant wait to try the whole set up.
Question: Was it easy to interconnect the Asiar pro w the PMC8 or did you run them separately.

Hi Paul,

That’s very nice! How often did you dither? I read you have to dither quite a bit to take advantage if drizzle. I am curious to see the difference with regular stacking too.

My take on Bode's and the Cigar galaxies.
137 two minute exposures with the ED 102 on the EXOS-II. Captured with the ZWO ASI071MC Pro (OSC camera) and the AsiairPro controlling.
Stacked in SIRIL (with drizzle, took over 6 hours), postprocessing in Photoshop
