Being knew to EAA there is a great deal to learn but one of the things that I appreciate it about it is that I'm able to make observations even during a nearly full moon. Last night the moon was incredibly bright but I was still able to view many deep sky objects and got some great images.
My equipment is a Celestron NextStar 6se with .50 focal reducer and ZWO 224 camera. Every time I go out a I learn new things about my equipment and how to use it. Last night, my goal was to experiment with a little lower gain setting. Previously I had been using gains of between 350 and 400. While I was able to capture some average pictures, they sometimes had some "streakiness" in them. After reading a great deal on the forums I decided that I need to attempt a bit lower gain, so last night I cut it back to 300. The results were outstanding in my opinion. I also am still working to get a better color balance. This is still a work in progress but I think I am heading in the right direction.
Here is M8 from last night. This has much more detail than anything I have gotten before. Color balance still needs works but very happy with the direction.
