Hey all, been a while since I shared... This is still a WIP until I hit 20 hours into it, but figured I'd post my results so far 5 hours in.

 

 Bortle 4/5 in Texas, backyard. 

 

 Just UV/IR filter used. 

 

getting the RASA to be truly flat without tilt is impossible, I did before, but now after fiddling with it for nights on end, this is as good as I got it and I'll leave it be. Always open to suggestions and critique as we all grow from both.

I struggled FOREVER with it... Its quite simple... I find my 294 best linear response is at 25k adu... So I set it for that, make sure I am evenly illuminated (I used the side of my house, which is yellow, pointed at it) and let NINA find the right exposure to give me 25k adu with a 15% Mean tolerance. snapped 35 of them and done. I calibrated with dark flats.
