Description

First light with new ASI1600MM-Cool camera - I like it!

I only had time for a few quick frames and had to get everything inside as rain was bearing down on me.

Just stretched in Pixinsight - no noise reduction or other steps taken. It looks noisy because I didn't have enough frames and each frame was only 60s - I need to use 300s frames next time.

Taken with unity gain.

Some amp glow still present near bottom and lower right - got to track down why this didn't completely subtract out.
