First light with new telescope

Recommended Posts

Finally I got first light with my new telescope, a Sky-Watcher Esprit 100. First target was NGC 9662 and in total I got 3 hours and 30 minutes of data from one night. In total I got 42 subs with 300 seconds taken with my Nikon D810A and a Astronomik UHC clip-in filter, all mounted on my Sky-Watcher AZ-EQ5 GT. Guiding and exposures was all controlled with my ASIAir Pro. Stacking and calibration was done in PixInsight and final touches in Photoshop.

Fantastic first light image. Do you use or need a field flattener with that scope? 

Thanks. Yes, I use the Sky-Watcher flattener.
