Description

First try to make a deep sky picture with the new 1600 MCC aftrer quarrelling with PHD Guiding, which does not work after all.. This picture was made above a big city with quite a light pollution. No filters were used. No Darks or Bias were made until now but will make them later and reprocess the image, neither the guiding was activated. The single Frame was taken with 15 secounds I was quite surprised that the nebulas could be revealed in spite of the light pollution.
