This was basically just a quick equipment test for my Altair Astro Hypercam 1600m Pro TEC and new imaging laptop.

Short little integration, with subs captured very near the bright moon. But I needed to see how the larger sensor worked with my 1.25" filters, and how the data calibrated.

All in all it is OK i think, even though I had to go really heavy with the gradient removal due to light pollution from the moon.
