I have no clue how I pulled this off. It's not perfect, shot it as a test. Have been struggling with guiding for a while, basically reset ekos, and seems so far done the trick, will have to see if the reset did the trick through being shut down for a while.

 

Anyway on a whim, figured why not, stuck the rasa on the EQ 6 R pro, shoved the Idas NBZ filter into the filter drawer stuck the asi533 on the end of it, lowered my expectations and got guiding to finally work and I managed to get about 45x120 second subs in my bortle 8/9 73% illuminated waxing gibbous moon skies. No calibration frames as I almost fell asleep outside and just wanted to look at the what I considered test data. Thought I'd put it up anyway.

 

Just some basic levels and background extraction and green noise removal. I might be able to play with this data more. See if I can figure out starnet or maybe the OSC narrowband trick.

 

I wasn't expecting this for sure...
