M81 with my new ASI 533 camera

Recommended Posts

Hi! This is my first image made with my new ASI ZWO 533MC camera. The target was M81 and the picture is a result of 50 shots x 300 sec, -20 deg. C, with my MN190 Maksutov-Newtonian astrograph on EQ6 belt-drive, from my backyard observatory. The sky is Bortle 5 on my location. The workflow for processing was the following: calibration with dark, bias and flats in MaximDL, debayering in Maxim again, alignment and stack in Maxim one more time and the rest of operations - MaximDL and StarTools.
