A test run with the C14 and the Starizona reducer @ F7,5 FL=2800mm on the famous Owl nebula. Next to the nebula one little dot is a quasar at a distance of 8 billion light years. Incredible.
A small group of 4 galaxies in Leo, with peculiar shapes. Test picture with the C11, Essatto and ASI2600mc. I still got mirror drift so egg shaped stars unfortunately. But it gives an impression of possibilities.
M109 is located very very close to Phecda, one of the stars in Ursa Major’s bowl. In fact the star caused reflections in this image. About 4 hours of data, 115x 120″ on ISO800. Guiding was done through OAG. Manual focus corrections.
The images were obtained using Sequence Generator Pro, and saved in TIF. This creates B/W images. To get your color back they need to be debayered. This can be done in AstroPixelProcessor by checking “Force CFA” in the menu 0/RAW/FITS
