Description

This is the first picture from my new observatory. First Light around Sadr and the Butterfly Nebula. :-) I took the data in June with my ASI 294 Color, because the Ascom driver for my CCD was not ready yet. I kept the exposure times as short as possible, because Sadr is a beast and I wanted to have it without a too big halo in the finished image. I think this is a good result overall. Even more stars and nebular details are well recognizable through its small halo.

Many months have passed since the planning, the construction and especially the final installation of the observatory. Meanwhile everything is ready and after extensive tests also ready for use. As a small impression I uploaded some more pictures of the observatory.
