Description

This was captured both at the GNTO (Bortles 2) and also in my Backyard (Bortles 4). The capture didn't go without a hitch as my iOptron GEM28 was giving me problems. I have since resolved the issues thanks to some manuals iOptron sent me and I was capturing between 0.98 - 1.15 RMS. I have been very pleased with the new ASI2600MM-P and a big shout out to #AdamBlock for assisting me with getting my flats resolved.
