I am currently doing some experiments with a uncooled camera ASI 178 mono to gain experience
with astro cameras. The camera is connected to a Samyang lens 135mm.
I have no filters and no filter wheel, so the picture is only black and white.
It is a stack of 248 images with exposure time of 32s and 98 images with exposure time of 40s.
Total exposure time: 3,3h
I think the result is remarable, the combination of the Samyang lens with the ASI 178 is an interesting equipment.
