This image was taken with my modified Canon 600D and a Zeiss 100mm while imaging the IC 1805 image posted earlier. I have started to run parallel sessions of deep sky and wide fields with APT as server (for the ASI) and a second APT instance as client (for the DSLR). This works beautifully.

All in all 62 x 240 sec with a Hutech IDAS LPS D1 clip filter. I need this filter as light pollution is a serious problem for wide fields in my neck of the woods.
