Description

A week is a very, very long time to wait when a new gadget is in house, and I believe it` s the longest recorded time span in human history, but the waiting was worth it.
My neighbour stayed away from his fireplace, and I got a clear sight to Orion😀.
The seeing was good, the stars didn't twinkle much, the satellites and planes stayed away from my view and I got a chance to do a successful meridian flip.
I shot 43 subframes and stacked all of them, and the Optolong L-eNhance filter performed very well, three days after full moon.
I guess I have solved some of the technical issues of imaging, but my skills in
PixInsight is still very much basic.
I hope to show at little progress in every image😀.
