Here's my first image with my Esprit 100mm ED Triplet @ f/5.5.  It was shot within the city of Phoenix, AZ at a Bortle 8+ site during 1st quarter moon.  Ninety 60 second subs including Darks, BIAS and Flats with an ASI2600MC Pro.  No light pollution filters were used.  Basic PixInsight processing.  I am looking forward to getting out to a dark site next month.

 

Compressed JPEG image.  C&C welcome.
