Description

Working through some of the data I collected from my remote rig (Shared with Dhaval Brahmbhatt) at Marathon, TX. It is clear to me that I need to rework my setup . I may need to switch to a larger camera chip (The new ASI6200MM is intriguing) or switch to a scope like AGO 10' IDK . I couldnt push the data as much I wanted to. The stars fall apart well before the point I want to push it.

Anyways, This data is
L - 110x5 minutes
R/G/B - 20x5 minutes
