NGC 6888 – Crescent Nebula

Only 12x300s – this was a test shot. The Esprit 120 has been equipped with the asi 533 MC pro camera. This camera gives a narrower field of view while keeping a better sampling factor.

Unfortunately, the autofocus routine didn’t work as planned, and only the first hour of the entire night was focused. But that is exactly what full moon nights are useful for: tuning the setup.

 

2 days later I added extra data to it, and got this, 2 hours of integration… not too bad!
