Description

This shot is the final from my ASI294C...It appears that the sensor has gone the way of the dodo...

There is a large spot right of center that has failed on the chip. I had to clip the back ground fairly well to eliminate it. I just liked the data so I went ahead and processed it any way...especially with the bad weather we have had here this year, so I guess I take what I can get....

Now to send the camera back to China! I wonder how long it will be until I see it again!!!!!
