Haven’t been imaging for nearly one year

I joined a star party a couple of days ago

and here is my first light with our new camera ASI1600MM-Cool


This is my new portable and lightweight setup for DSO imaging

Mount: ZEQ25

Scope: 70SA 2kg Only

Imaging and Guiding system: ASI1600MM-Cool+EFWmini+ZWO New LRGB, OAG + ASI290MM for guiding  1KG total

So this imaging setup is only 3kg


All data captured at Unity Gain and 3 mins exposure for single frame

M27 L*12 R*3 G*3 B*3

M27 is very high in the sky, I just combined the RGBL together and did a DDP, I don’t even need to adjust the color

ZWO New LRGB Filters are very suitable for ASI1600,  EFWmini works great all night as well.

M8&M20 L*20 R*5 G*5 B*5


M31 L*40 R*10 G*10 B*10

This is the most difficult object!Very hard to do the post processing, anyway this is what I can do

Picture saved with settings embedded.

    Noob question.

    Could you tell me what is the meaning of “L*40 R*10 G*10 B*10” ?

    I’m very excited about this system. When will your OAG be available? I can’t wait to get this on my AstroTech RC8..moving up from my dslr system to your ASI1600MM-C 36″ filter kit seems like the most cost effective and logical transition for me. Great products guys! Will I need any other spacers for the scope or attachments for my new QHY5III-178 guide camera?

      our OAG is ready, we will upload to our site soon
      there is 1.25″ holder, so 1.25″ body should fit

        Thanks for sharing all these wonderful articles. In addition, an excellent travel along with medical insurance strategy can often eradicate those issues that come with vacationing abroad. A new medical crisis can shortly become very expensive and that’s guaranteed to quickly decide to put a financial weight on the family’s finances. Having in place the perfect travel insurance package prior to setting off is definitely worth the time and effort. Thanks a lot

        Nin por todo iso se vai librar vostede de que lle desexe o mellor para 2010.Por certo, iso de que os Reis é un invento era unha inoncentada, ¿non sí? Non me irá a dar ese disgusto.
