At last, after 7 weeks of solid cloud I got a short window to try to grab some images with the new camera. It ended up as only 90 mins total integration but I think its OK for that.

SW 80ED, NEQ6, ASI2600mc, L-eNhance
15 each 180s, 120s, and 60s gain 100.

 

This is a very quick hash through just to see what I got, stacked APP with Ha-Oiii colour algorithm, PP in pixinsight. It's a bit grainy when you zoom in tight, I think thats probably because I pushed it too far to get the outer dust and there was just not enough data for that.

Fantastic photo. Great detail and range of exposure between the inner core and extended outer regions. Certainly worth the seven week wait.

Great work, love the image!  You have inspired me to try the range of exposures as well!
