Lucky to have a clear night here in London the day camera arrived ! Here's a montage for colourful planetaries etc to test the new camera on in single 20s exposures all to same scale except the enlarged 'Bowtie' NGC 40. Used the main scope eg Meade 12" SCT @ f/3.6 eg 1100mm fl [see pic inset] and SX capture s/ware allows complete control and provides the high colour saturation I like and tweaked in PaintShopPro before posting.
The new camera has a noticeable extra turn of speed over the old Lodestar-C and images are remarkably clean and free from artefacts as the captured raw M57 [under View option] below shows before colour conversion. Hot pixels are far fewer and although dark and flat frames were captured they was not used.
I think I'm going to enjoy the post summer skies - here's 1st light gallery clip @ https://www.youtube....h?v=worQJ6y9CtA
