My friend Paul (OldManSky here on CN) was heading out of town on business this week and loaned me his ASI183MM and filter wheel.   I had one night that was mostly clear and got in a few hours of Ha on the core of the Heart Nebula.   I have been doing DSLR work for a while, so this was my first ever use of a cooled mono camera.

 

I hope I get a few more clear nights to get some more imaging in while I have this camera, but it is not looking good for the next few days.   This is the reduced sized image - full resolution here:

Yes - you are correct.   I think I will have to sell off some OTAs and other stuff I have accumulated over the years so that I can make it to my 25th wedding anniversary in May of next year.   If I don't, it will be a toss up!
