These are not the best images, but I am now using a new camera, a DSLR instead of the Meade DSI II. I am using the Meade DSI for auto-guiding as the Sony a330 with infra-red remote is far better. The auto-guiding does help with tracking accuracy but it still does need some tweaking. The problem with the Sony a330 DSLR is that it is not compatible with ANY DSLR astronomy imaging software anywhere. Even ASCOM does not work with it: so you can see some things are slightly out of focus. … adding more pics to this post this weekend.
