Literally first use and image with this camera...y'all are going to have a field day with this puppy.

 

Astronomik CLS used in both cameras  I understand CLS-CCD filter makes a difference. Don't have one yet.

Also did not use custom white balance. Do not have tools (grey card, etc.) to do so yet.

My darks, flats and bias used were from old camera.

 

Should have imaged an easier target than the crescent nebula. Not quite sure how much of the stars are actually noise. There are LOTS of stars around that thing.

 

Stock - 300 sec at 800 iso, histogram nice and tight to the left.

Full sprectrum - 300 sec at iso 800, histogram in the middle but with some spread.  At 1600 iso, was pretty blown out. Needed 180 sec to keep to left.

 

Stock -  Histogram most of the time were always red, green, blue. Red always first.

Full spectrum - Histogram was green, blue, red for this image.

 

Don't think there is star bloat as warned but not sure. Used my es ed80.

 

42 x 180. ISO 800

 

Used the modded camera setting in DSS. Figured that was the way to go.

 

For review are single exposure, stacked, and attempt at processed.

Get the defibrillator ready for Mr. Jerry just in case.

That’s a really nice pic (the second one).
