This was a quick test of my AR-6 using a 2x Barlow. The seeing wasn’t the best and I didn’t have time to check the focus using a reference star and my Bahtinov mask, but this shows promise for being able to do some nice high resolution imaging with a large achro. Once the moon moves a bit farther along and I have more time before it heads into the trees I hope to try an RGB color image.
