      Description

      This is the first project with my new QHY268M Camera. Lots of challenges with the bigger sensor and the RASA 11". Thanks to the Baader Titler I managed to achieve a fairly flat field.

      The new Sony sensor is for sure a big upgrade over the old panasonic sensor of the ASI1600MM camera. I tried to go as deep as possible and capture lots of surrounding nebulosity. I ended up with about 40 hours of imaging data, but I just used the best frames for a total intergration time of 33 hours.

      I started this project in early December of last year and managed to capture the last frames for the RGB Stars at the end of february.
