Description

This is the very first light for a brand new astrograph! The image has been taken during the last Winter Star Party in the Florida Keys. The telescope used is the new Officina Stellare RiLA 400 (16" f3.8 on Software Bisque Paramount ME. It is an unguided sum of 24x120" shots LRGB with a FLI ML11002 camera and Astrodon filterset. The luminance is the results of the sum of all the channels. Despite the low latitude of the Keys, the object was still very low thus blu frames where still bloated and there where some scattering and differential diffraction due the atmosphere. Anyway, this is the result presenting the core in a full res crop.

Thanks for watching!
