Hello! 

 

I would like to share with you my last image of NGC4565 I acquired in April.. I have acquired some images from a polluted sky ( red zone ) because I have been very busy with my stuff and so I did not have time to move in a dark place.

honestly I am very happy of the QHY168C with the L-Pro...very satisfied of this camera! I can’t wait to take it to a very very dark place!!!

Here there are all the details of the image:

 

Technical Informations:

Telescope: AIRY APO 130T Reduced f/5.3
Mount: NEQ6-Pro
Camera : QHY168C -- GAIN:10 ; OFFSET:32 -- -20°C
Filter: Optolong 2" L-Pro
Frames: RGGB 150 x 240s
Total Integration: 10 Hours
Software: SGP – PHD2 – PixInsight – CS6
Location: Noventa di Piave (Venice) 4 meter above sea level – ITALY
Relative Humidity: 88%
Date: 19.04.18 - 20.04.18 - 21.04.18

 

I think that I could have arrived at the same result with 7/8 hours of exposure time, instead of 10.

 

 

I hope yoy like it!

you can find some other images taken under the same sky,too! (Unfortunately bad sky)

Beautiful.  I like the upper right image which frames the the faint galaxy perpendicular next to the needle.
