Continued testing of my ASI 294MC Pro.
Using short subs (30 seconds) and limited cooling (-5C) while I get used to the camera.

My intent in purchasing the camera was to use as a portable setup for my dark site. Health issues are placing that on hold so I'm using it at my house in a red zone. Seems to work well.

Note: camera gain was 200, and subs were integrated using APP with no post processing.
