First image with new equipment

Here is my first image with the new QSI6120WSG-8 and SV70T. It is a widefield of M13. I tried a different approach and used short sub times, 60s lum and 120s rgb. I took 206 lum and 20ea. rgb for a 5.4hr total.I think more time would help. 30 flats no darks. I also used the AT2" FF and Orion Skyglow lp filter.

Pretty nice for short subs. I think loner subs, in about the 3min range would help out enhancing the faint fuzzies that are around.

Re: First image with new equipment

I have not used in the field yet. I have the Atlas on the outside pier and am still using it. I just got the pier base finished in the roll off and should have the CEM60 mounted in a couple days. You can see the progress here viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3257
