Ah yes, I see that now. The comma between 460EXM and Atik through me off.
Yes I can see why you went with 2X2 binning for most of it.

Thanks for the additional detail.

Ross, I'm using 460EX Mono. Great camera, if a little too small pixel size for my setup. Here are additional acquisition details: Lum (1x1): 16x10min, RGB (2x2): 7x5 each, H-Alpha (2x2): 8x10min. Total: 5.75hrs. Thank you for commenting.

Lots of detail in that one Ian. If you want you might try a little bit of "sharpening or contrast" to tighten up the soft look but otherwise it's another good result from couple of nights work.
Thanks for the acquisition info too. What model of the Atik are you shooting with?

Greg, I use Celestron's 14" EdgeHD with 0.7X focal reducer.

Ian, what size scope did you use?
