Description

After several months of working, finally the new set up is up and running.
I changed ASI1600 -> QHY268 on RC10 and AS183 -> QHY294 on TS107 and all that involved!! A lot, a lot of effort as you really know

This is the first good image after all that changes, calibrations and preparations.

It's a classic, super-photographed target, really good to compare with previous results, like this from 2017:



4 years it's a lot of time to learn more PIX techniques, upgrade the telescope, filters and cameras and of course, change the palette that I am using.

I prefer this framing and thanks to all that experience, hardware changes and more than 67 hours of integration, it's more detailed and more deep. 

It's amazing how this kind of small details appear


I hope you like it, more images on the pipeline!!
