Description

First light for a new tube, a Esprit 80 just received, as well as the ASI 294MM PRO

4 hrs integration on IC1396, the Elephant Trunk nebula on Cepheus, without guiding (driver problem......). Quite surprised on the result, for good this time.

Quite happy with the result.

Lights: 60x240¨ with Baader 7nm HA filter

Hope you like it!
