Description

And here is a new test image for the ASI 6200:

The sky area is the the well-known Veil Nebula in the constellation of Cygnus, the Swan, NGC 6960

In this test I paired the ASI6200 with an Optolong l-eNhance filter that I have already reviewed some time ago.

I must say that, despite the sultry sky of these days, both the camera and the filter performed well.

Unfortunately my telescope's field flattener is not designed to handle the full frame format of this camera, and the stars at the edges suffer from obvious elongation.
