130SLT

I took my Celestron 130SLT with it's ALT/AZ mount a couple of nights ago. ASI224MC. I used Photoshop to crop out field rotation and adjusted the contrast and brightness.  I love Sharpcap Pro's plate solving capability.  Most solved in under 10 seconds.

Flame Nebula (32x8s, 350 gain) This was pretty close to the moon.

M42 (42x8s, 350 gain, 250 gain) I started with a high gain which blew out the core for a couple of frames and then dropped it down to 250 gain for the rest of the frames.8d1fb3a7710f6def2d87304bafdbb9ea.620x0_q

M76 (22x8s, 400 gain)

Very nice captures Rob, the setup is working very well. Do you use the plate solving for navigating to the objects?

I use the Stellarium to get me in the general area.  Sharpcap's Plate Solving moves it into the field of view if it's not visible.

Nice captures. The camera seems up to the job for short exposure DSO imaging, I was looking at that camera myself.
