  1. Hi! I finally caught the color with QHY168C :-) First clear night without the moon but only 2h of darkness here... But it was enough for comet and fireworks galaxy. C/2015 v2 Johnson 10x120s at gain 10 offset 4 NGC6946 40x180s at gain 10 offset 4 Best regards, Tomek
  2. Hi, I'm looking for the IDAS D1 2" filter. If you have one for sale, please let me know Tomek
  3. Thanks Adam :-) Good idea, I haven't got OIII filter yet but I have to buy it! Tomek
  4. Scratches are from screwed cover. Anyway it is a far better than loose plastic cover from QHY163C ;-)
  5. Hi! Finally I have my brand new QHY168C ColdMOS camera :-) I ordered a beta prototype but I think that this is a retail version. You can see how its look: new, nice looking box cables and other stuff: And the camera ;-) Compared with QHY163C Because of the moon I took only one DSO picture with Baader Ha 7nm filter and Tair 300mm lens: 25x300s Gain 4 Offset 70 The camera is very sensitive and there is no visible ampglow even at 600s dark frame! Here is also moon picture taken with 200/1200 Newtonian scope and 2x Vixen Deluxe barlow. Tomek
  6. Hi! Finally clear sky in Poland! Time to first galaxy image from my QHY163C. I'm still very happy with this camera and now waiting for QHY168C BETA. I hope that it will be even better than 163 40x180s calibrated with darks, biases and flats
  7. Hi! This time I have tried old 58mm Helios lens made in CCCP attached to QHY163C ColdMOS camera. And... the lens is terrible Only centre of the frame is OK with rounded stars. On edges or even more (1/3 of frame) there are trail not stars! I spent two nights to take a whole Barnard's loop picture - one for Ha and second for RGB. Camera is great and it has very nice sensitivity in Ha. This is final image my favourite DSO: 24x300s Ha 7nm 30x180s RGB And only Ha: Tomek
  8. Hi Wim and sorry for a very late answer... Yes, it is the same sensor like Adam said. This is only Ha with Baader 7nm filter Tomek
  9. Hi, Two pics taken with QHY163C ColdMOS. I like this camera :-) It's very sensitive, with Ha 7nm filter even more than my previous QHY8L. M42 (Newtonian 150/750 reflector) 70x60s 30x5s Gain 10 Offset 70 Rosette nebula with Ha 7nm 2" filter (Tair 3s lens) 15x300s Gain 10 Offset 70 Regards, Tomek
  10. Hi! Finally my new camera QHY163C was tested under dark sky :-) I'm very happy with result, it's only 90mins of exposure (30x180s) calibrated with darks, biases and flats. My only worry is ampglow on CMOS but I will try to reduce it next time Best regards and Happy New Year! :-) Tomek
  11. Thank you Rodd :-) I'm using Sky Watcher Newtonian 150/750 scope with MPCC.
  12. Hi! My second session with QHY8L. Still learning of this camera... Only 120mins because of connection problems with EQMOD but I'm pretty happy with the image :-) -12x600s light - darks - flats -biases Tomek
  13. Thank You! Yes, I'm very pleased :-) I have quite good dark sky and Bubble nebula was high over horizon so processing was easier than with Nikon. My full setup: SkyWatcher 150/750 Newtonian, HEQ5 SynScan with BT dongle, guided with QHY5LII, AstroJolo focuser (now changed to AstroHub 3.0
