Unbelivable, this was the Firstlight for my new Esprit 80 ED and ASI 1600 MM Pro. I never had an experience with an cooled Deepsky-Camera before.
The night was very cloudy and a bit polluted with moonlight. Not the best conditions for Deepsky-Photography, but however it actually worked. Just the core is a bit burned out.
