We first became acquainted, through a local astronomical society, in 1991. Both of us had recently and independently made first steps into CCD imaging with the purchase of an SBIG ST4 autoguider and Electrim EDC1000TE CCD camera. Deciding to pool resources from then on, we purchased an SBIG ST6 and concentrated on producing some of the UK’s first tri-colour CCD images.
