Description

This is the first image I took with my ZWO ASI294MC Pro, I took both Ha and OSC data, and combined them in deepskystacker and post processed them in Star-Tools. I hope you like my image, I know everyone has an image of these objects, probably many others are better than mine, but used this target as a baseline for the camera to get an idea of the settings I should use when imaging with shorter, high gain exposures. Leave a comment and let me know what you think, and if there is an object you would like to see imaged, please let me know!
