My first LRGB image from this RC8 scope. I would thank most to the extreme good environment of our club ranch at West Texas. Extremely dark, allow me to finish this dim object within 12 hours. The seeing was very good when I took L subs. I also tried bin 2 mode when collecting RGB data. So dark when I went outside, I saw nothing and fell off the deck lol.gif

Really great looking shot! Not a lot of integration yet really impressive detail without noise. Love the color too.
