Last night, in the heat and humidity, I got to try my new ASI 533MC-Pro.  Using my trusty old, Televue Pronto, with an L-Pro Filter, Guidescope and guide camera, and the game changer, the ASIAIR Pro.  I cooled the 533MC-Pro to -5C and acquired 3 hours of data (60 three minute subs).  I used flats, dark flats and dark frames for processing.  It was stacked in AstroPixel Processor, then stretched in Siril, final processing was done with GIMP.  

 

I may have a light leak in the imaging train, as there were some strange artifacts.  But, I'm pleased with the first image from this camera.

 

Here's the full resolution image on AstroBin.

I'm only about 17 miles away from Times Square in NYC, so if I can get results like these, you can too!
