Description

First light with my new ZWO ASI 294 MM (monochrome) camera. Did not had that much time to acquire data (also first time with EAF), but managed to get some workable data on all channels. Very basic processing workflow in PI (never did monochrome before), so I guess it can still improve after a proper run.
