Description

After my last equip-improvements and several tests, this is my "first light", exposing NCG7000 ("North-America-Nebula".

I'm using a Moravian G2-8300m CCD with an Astrodon 31mm H-Alfa-filter, 5nm.

Telescope is a TS APO 130, f/7 (f=920mm), guided with an TS APO80, f/6 (f=480mm) and a ZWO ASI120MC-S.

Exposing-software is SIPS V3.19, guiding software PHD 2.6.7.

Each of the 22 lightframes is exposed for 1200s at -20°C, 1x1 binned.

I processed the pictures rudimentarily with MaximDL Pro 6.16, using hot&cold-pix removement, calibrating (64 BIAS, 64 FLATS, 64 DARKS) and stacking with the sigma-clipping-method.

Comments are welcome! =D
