First Light ASI2600mc


Recommended Posts

So after 7 weeks of unremitting cloud I finally got the new camera outside. for all of 90 minutes before Orion started to get too low and clouds started to build again.

But at least I got an image. This is 15 each of 180s, 120s and 60s. I did that partly to get a handle on how the camera performs and of course to try to get some detail in the core.

It is stacked in APP using the Ha-Oiii colour algorithm then a very quick hash through in Pixinsight.

Overall I'm pretty happy with it - a bit grainy when you zoom in hard  and I'm not sure if that's because of the limited integration or my cack-handed processing. I think that to try to show the dust I pushed it further than the limited data could take. I'll give it another go after extracting the Ha and Oiii signals in APP

But still, for 90 mins its not too bad I think.
