Second Light for the Canon 200mm lenses and ASI 2600MC-Pro CMOS cameras.

This is a very quick (and dirty) process of last night’s Gamma Cassiopeia data taken on the 200mm lens rig. It was final setting up time so I managed to get both cameras in portrait mode, aligned both cameras very … Continue reading

Last night was First Light for the new 200mm lens rig. I chose the Gamma Cass region as there’s plenty going on there. Two changes to make, need to rotate the cameras 90 degrees anticlockwise to get them in portrait … Continue reading
