First serious try with a real DSO camera: QHY23. Used a Canon 50 mm f/1.8 Mark I (the metal bayonet one). Bin 2x2, no LPS filters.
Hard to focus! I´m spoiled by the Bahtinov mask...
Anyway, 40 x 45 s, no guiding over an AVx mount, no Darks or Flats. Processed with PixInsight, I confess I put little effort on the processing so far. It came up nice, I think, there are a hint of the central bar and lots and lots of bright open clusters, in the leading extremity of the LMC, including the enormous Eta Carinae region.
