The Moravian G3 16200 is a wonderful camera. However I suspect that it does not do as well on narrow band targets as my Atik 460. However the 460 does have a limitation and that is the sensor size. I wish Sony would have produced a bigger sensor with the same characteristics but I digress.
I found IC63 an incredibly faint target from my location. It may have been exacerbated by relatively poor transparency but I needed very long exposures to capture anything other than the HA. There was some SII & OIII but it was very faint. I could not capture anything other than RED RGB data as the proximity to bright stars was destroying the blue & green subs with bright off field star banding.
Ultimately I caught a mere smidgen of OII & SII data but it was there upon stretching the image. I realised that it would have perhaps taken at least 24 hours through each narrow band filter to capture anything significant in SII & OIII but the HA was pretty good.

I have not corrected the image for the Hubble pallet. There is not not enough OIII or SII data.
As always clear skies to you and let me know what you think of the image.
However I'm still not sure if it was worth the 24 hours of imaging time with the C14. I will do better with the RASA 11 when that is rolled out in the next few months. The etude is so much higher on that instrument which is needed on targets like this for the OIII & SII data.
