I added another image, maybe with a focal too high for the seeing.

Nice images with the QHY Paolo. The background looks very light on my screen?

The gamma is always the default: 100

The gain is variable from 327 (first image: 21:29) to 648 (last image 20:53)
I tried not to go too low with the ADU (50% of the histogram about).
