 Hello everyone. Just sharing 2 of the images taken while at this past weeks WSP under the darks skies of the Florida Keys. I was only there Thursday and Friday, and the weather was spotty those two days. Was able to complete just these 2 shots. 

 

 Orion was total 1 hour RGB data. Could not use the Luminance since it blew out the core, even at 30 second subs. Still I feel it is my best work to date, it has been a long year, but I am hooked!

 

 Horse Head was just 25 minutes per channel, and 30 for Luminance. Processed in Pixinsight.

 

 ZWO ASI 183MM with Astronomik LRGB filter set. Losmandy G11 with SiTech Go To system. Takahashi FSQ 85 scope. Seeing was above average, but nothing to write home about. Still dark sky is dark sky... I was guiding at .62 total RMS at 1.02 pixel scale for most of the night.
