Description

My first image with the QHY 294M Pro. The data this camera produces is fantastic, and it is very versatile with it's two modes. A great combination and beats out the 16200A at this focal ratio and scale despite being somewhat over sampled at 1960mm. I hope to image many more galaxies with this combination before they all sink below the horizon.
