Description

M74, Shot with my ZWO 183MM 3 hours 15 mins of data using my Astronomik CLS,R,G,B filters. This is my first processed image with my updated "rig". The "rig" being the ZWO 183MM, WO132FLT equipped with the V focuser 20th anniversary edition (in red) and the DarkFrame Stellardrive NEQ6 mount. I believe that the prescribed back focus of the WO Flat 7 is out for my setup by some 1.85mm, this image was taken with the prescribed backfocus. I look forward to posting images with the correct back focus in place (56.95mm for this config).
