I took a quick pic of the Christmas Tree Cluster (I only had a limited time before it went behind the house). The parameters:
Scope: Z81 w/ the reducer (448mm)
Mount: EQ6-R Pro
Camera: ASI071MC Pro
Computer: ASIair Pro
Guidescope: ZWO 30mm
Guide Camera: ASI224 MC
Exposure time: 3 min
# of Subframes: 19
I am really liking the ASIair Pro, goto is super trivial with platesolving (it feels like magic to me, this is the first time using platesolving). I was guiding an average of ~ 0.65" RMS (combine RA and DEC). I only dithered 1px, perhaps I need to increase this value. By the way, this was first light for the new imaging rig. These are under Bortle 7 skies with a floodlight in the background (which is not LED at least).
I processed this entirely using Pixinsight (except when resizing it to upload it here). Please be gentle on the processing part, I just downloaded and started using Pixinsight last week (there is a bit of a learning curve here). I used WBP to preprocess, DBE (wow this works well), I played with some denoising, and did some histogram stretching and curve changes. I really like Pixinsight, I hope to get better at it.
