I had two really good sessions of viewing the last couple nights. The scope is a Celestron 11 Edge on a CGX mount, camera ASI294 Pro Color using the latest version of SharpCap, and a Mallincam Universe x.5 reducer for f/5. Gain was 370, manual color settings, binning 2, a dark applied, temperature at -23C. All images were stacked live, 25 second exposures or less, and all 4 and 8 minutes or so of total exposure time. All were saved as viewed and cropped for tracking borders and gamma adjusted to match what I had live on my 40" 3D plasma TV. I mention this because the images' background brightness on my laptop doesn't quite match the best settings for viewing on the plasma TV. I viewed twice this many objects, but these were the cream of the crop.
