So finally after QHY sorted all the issues with UB2 I was able to capture some data to give a good test run to my new QHY163M, I choose something "easy" in Ha as this will be my primary aim with this camera, as I image mainly from my light polluted back yard at the city
This was just a quick and dirty processing, to be honest I was like a zombie after a days work but I had to do it, it's been siitting for a few days waiting for processing, something is not very well I suspect with my dark or bias frames as I see a lighter band at the bottom of the image, seems like the amp glow did not callibrate out perfectly but that should be something or some bad frame in the stack so will have to see that in better detail...also yes, the microlenses reflection is a concern, very well visible on the brighter star, there is a simmetrical reflection around the star, I sure hope the gurus will find an easy way to deal with this in the future...maybe a PS plug in hehehe
Appart from that, it need more frames to clean up the dim areas, but the details are quite something for only 480mm f/l.
SW ED80 at f/6
Baader Ha 7nm filter
EQ6 mount autoguided with ASI 120MM and a 50mm finder
Stack of 35x300 secs at Gain20 Offset100 USB traffic 5
Plus 15x60 secs + 10x15 secs for the core (still slightly overexposed)
So this is a first "draft" and I will get back at it for inprovement when I'm feeling fresher must check the callibration frames and smooth out the background.
