Description

This is the real First light with this new rig:

An Openastrotech mount with Canon 200 2.8 lens and ASI1600MM-C.
With new Baader Planetarium Ha 6.5nm CMOS-optimized.

I would like to do many things, add Sii and Oiii data and with this FOV a lot of new objects are on the list....
It's really interesting how much signal could be captured only with 10 hours of integration time (f/3.5!!)

This nebula, also called Sh2-240 is about 3.000 light years away and it was discovered in 1952.
It's a really big object, in the next picture you could see a simulation if you shoot the moon with this equipment.  


I am really excited searching the next target!!
