Description

First image taken with my new ZWO ASI294MM Pro. Shooting in narrowband was not as much work as I expected. I found there was a trade off, I had to shoot through three different filters but at the same time I didn't have to fight the light pollution. I think my next step will be to attempt LRGB on a broadband object such as a galaxy.
