This was the first ride for my new ASI1600MM-C which substituted Canon 60D which I used previously. Obviously, now I have to deal with a much more complex workflow of taking a bunch of different images through different filters and combining them afterwards which feels completely worth it after a year with non cooled OSC camera.
