Description

I set up a portable imaging rig this summer and for simplicity I picked up a ZWO 1600MC-Cool. This is my first image with it. I love the telescope and the mount, but I'm not sure I love the camera. For almost 13 hours of data I was expecting a cleaner result. I think if I had imaged this with my mono camera and LRGB filters it would have looked cleaner for the same amount of time. The OSC version of this camera takes very low noise subs, but I think I'll probably trade it out for another Mono version.

Anyway, this is almost 13 hours taken across three nights, but needs another 13 IMO. I had to stretch pretty aggressively and the result is fairly noisy. Hopefully clear dark skies are in my forecast and I can complete this.

Added Ha and Luminance Data.

C&C welcome.
