I'm doing a different approach, because I adquired an color ccd after I have buied a mono ccd. The main objective is image small objects like galaxies with this camera which sensor is smaller than my QHY163M.

This was my starter with the new camera, Trifid Nebula was choosen because it is a very well known object and easy to evaluate the new configuration.
