This image was a first test of the 2xPowermate in the TV-85, as well as my first time using Registax. Fifty-two images were captured and processed to create the image. The results are exceptional and are a fortuitous result of very good seeing and perfect focus. The color is completely false - the Baader filter gives a magenta hue to the image, and the debayering routine of Registax converted that to cyan.
