I have completed my first image and processing using my new QHY183M CMOS. This is also my very first use of a CMOS as all my experience has been with CCD cameras. It was my wish to evaluate how well I could use a small pixel CMOS on a mid-range focal length refractor to achieve resolution that was commensurate with using larger pixel CCDs on longer focal length scopes. The result turned out fairly well.
On the AstroBin page I provide a lot more details including field notes with using the QHY183M with SGP as well as choices made on offset, gain, exposure times, etc. Please follow the links to the AB pages for those details and feel free to comment here or there.

Thank you for your attention, and your comments and suggestions are most welcome!
This is a cropped version of the image that hasn't reproduced well here on CN. I recommend that you take a look at the higher resolution images on AB for a more fair evaluation.
