Last night I was testing a new beta firmware for my 10Micron GM1000 HPS mount.
As a final test, before dawn, I've done a single UNGUIDED shot on NGC 2024 in Orion belt.

After 20 minutes the tracking was perfect!

This is a single uncalibrated shot, only with Histogram Transformation and denoise

La scorsa notte stavo testando un nuovo firmware beta per la mia 10Micron GM1000 HPS.
Come test finale, poco prima dell'alba, ho scattato una singola immagine NON GUIDATA su NGC 2024 in Orione.

Dopo 20 minuti di posa l'inseguimento era ancora perfetto.

Questa immagine è uno scatto singolo, non calibrato, solo con una trasformazione di istogramma e un po' di riduzione del rumore.
