Pierro Astro ADC - in part

Having seen Martin Lewis' use of an ADC, I decided to try mine.  Unfortunately it is an early ADC and hasn't got as good a pass rate for UV as later ones have, but by slowing my frame rate down from 200fps to 65fps I was able to get some reasonable images of Venus.  This composite image compares with and without the ADC.  Without th ADC was back to the usual speed.
