Description

California Nebula with the Radian Raptor61 using the ASI2600 OSC camera and L-eXtreme light pollution filter. This is a stack of 30 x 300second subs shot in bortle 8 sky.

I think this camera is well suited for this scope, or any crop sensor DSLR. I did test this scope using my full frame ASI6200 camera and star aberrations for very noticeable at the corners and you will end up cropping down the image when using a full frame camera. I just wanted to share this in case any people on here were looking to buy one to use on a full frame camera. It is a very nice scope and hope to shoot more with it using different cameras to compare. Clear Skies!
