Description

Luminance: 34 x 300'' (G2-8300 + Newton 250/1000mm)

RGB: 33 x 300'' (ASI2600MC-Pro + SW 80/600mm, with reducer 510mm)

Usually I shoot monochrome and need at least two nights for a finished image. I have now bought an ASI2600 MC (an OSC) to try the following:

This NGC 7023 is the result of an attempt to mix the color information of an OSC camera on a refractor (80/600mm, with reducer 510mm) with the luminance of a Newton (250/1000mm).

Would still like to collect the R-G-B images directly on the Newton with the mono camera to see the comparison.

The time savings would be enormous with this setup.

Anyway, I am quite happy with the result.
