Such a clean image!  Is this from your three scopes and three ASI1600 cameras?   Your colors are perfect here and the image has so much detail its stunning.

yes it is!, with just 10hrs imaging time on a bortle 6 sky.. I also use 400mm triscope on canon lenses or a combo canon/refractor but lately I just bought two Stellarvue to match the focal length so I can remove the need for filter wheels.

This is my 400mm triscope. I sold two of my EFW and a set of astrodon filters and got  the starizona filter slider instead with plenty of spare funds left. This was shown with a guide scope which I wont need also since switching to OAG.

I thought my rig was nuts, yours are crazy!  What are you using to mount the three scopes? Do you use more than one aiming device?

Holy mother of god, that is a rig.  LOL... makes my AVX mount and camera and lens look like a starter scope at the drug store.
