I just got back from an incredible night ever EAA Imaging. Although the dew was horrendous, my Orion XX14g dripping with water, I garnered 9 planetary nebula, using my new ASI533MC Pro camera and L-eNhance filter and a 2x barlow making for an F/9.2 focal ratio.
Before and then after my secondary dewed up, in which I attached a dew strip to warm it up, I got some great results with my scope/camera setup.
Here are my results. I should point out that the XX14g has a lot to be desired with its goto pointing system. I used an ASI290MM Mini as an E-finder to help me locate these elusive objects by star hopping after the scope got me in the general area.
