Description

This photo is the first light of the ZWO ASI 183mm sensor in which the potential of this monochrome camera is shown.

Soon we will begin to record the light of another emission line: the greenish O-III, that is, of the ionized oxygen. This will be more difficult to achieve from the city but combined with h-alpha will give a color image.
