I took this image earlier in the week from my Bortle 7 skies. I wanted to give it more time but high cloud haze started to brown out the image.

 

Image consists of 19 x 5 minutes sub exposures. Live Stacked and calibrated on the fly in SharpCap Pro. Tidied up in PS.

 

Taken with ASI2600MC Pro. Espirit 150mm scope and Optolong L-Pro filter.

How are you liking the esprit 150/así 2600 combo? That's my eventual goal setup.

Very nice image.

I think it is a great combination. I have never been a big refractor fan but this scope is bringing me around because of the consistency is gives. You do have to be careful with focus shifts with temperature drops over the night.  I found a refocus every hour is about the right balance if you want to keep the stars tight. I use an Optolong L-Pro filter that introduces slight chromatism to stars but it is essential in my Bortle 7 skies.
