Description

First light for my christmas present, a Atik 460exm and my first narrowband image ever.
Very bad conditions, foggy and cloudy with a full moon nearby, but i couldn't resist do do some test exposures with my new toy ;)

Update: I've added some better Ha-frames (12x600s)... Addtitionally i was able to capture some O3-Frames (6x600s). These were combined as Bicolor-Image
Ha: L+R
