First Image with double stacked Lunt scope

After installing the DSII module on my Lunt scope, I exchanged the eyepiece for the camera and tried to take my first image.

I took some images just before installing the DSII and after. Let's compare these:

Single StackDouble Stack

Hmmmm, before even comparing further. There seems to be some strange banding on the Double Stack image. I checked all other images. Took another series again ... always with the same result.

Posted on the Solar Chat Forum about it ...

Update October 22:
These seem to be Newton Rings. Not sure why I didn't see these before. But apparently tilting the camera a little bit eliminates them. Order this little tilter that should fix this.
