First light with my new TS 86 SDQ f/5.4 Quadruplet Apochromat.
Monochrome H-alpha in Sepia style.
I didn‘t use flat frames for this first light result. The TS86SDQ shows a very uniform illumination at least for the size of the KAF8300 sensor.
I gathered light in O3 and S2 also and I will create a narrowband composite picture soon.
