I got a chance to try out my new ZWO ASI294MC Pro last night.  These are done with my Orion ED80T-CF/AVX w/Televue 0.8x focal reducer/field flattener and an IDAL LPR-P2 filter:

Very nice captures Rob, you need to view the originals to appreciate these! The stars are very small and tight due I guess to the high resolution. So the scope is at F6 and a focal length of 480mm? It must be a very big chip as the FOV is huge! 

Did you do use any software to process these on the fly? This is not a criticism, but I had a quick go at brightening the M45 image and a lot more nebulosity appears, although the sky gets brighter.

Thanks for posting. :icon_salut:
