To test my brand new CEM70 mount I've shot a total of 90 minutes, which is definitely not enough for these kind of subject.
The idea was do a complete session with lights, flats and darks and see how the setup was behaving.
Since I'm pretty satisfied with the results, I will restart on NGC7000 with the new Moon, this time with proper spacing between the sensor and the flattener... and of course, more integration!
