Description

This image represents first light with a new camera--an ASI2600MC-P. I wanted to do a test wide angle shot with both emission and reflection targets to test using both broad and narrowband filters with this camera. This was shot with a Z61, but the ambition is to do a large-scale mosaic of the Orion region using the C11 and Hyperstar and then drill in on the various targets in that with the C11 at full or 0.7x focal length.
