Description

This is my first complete test with the ZWO ASI 1600 MM Pro CMOS camera. All frames were taken under a full moon but it was just to make a start on getting the new equipment under control. Not everything is looking optimal yet but at least this will be a basis on which I can start improving :-).

Needed to make the background a bit to black because of high gradient caused by the full moon.
