I am back on Astromart, I just created my new account, and i share with you my first decent image taken with the STL11000 camera.
18X15 minutes with my 155 f7 StarFire EDF, and the new 155TCC compressor flattener, from my light polluted urban area.

Nice image! I've got 155TCC for my 155EDF but I haven't used it yet. I'll be using it with a KAF-16803 camera. From what I can see your corner stars look nice and round.

Very nice wide field of this interesting area. I took a look at the full rez version - the optics look fantastic.

Welcome back Gilles! The image looks great. I like the "tadpoles", which look especially great in the full sized image. Nicely done. I look forward to more of your images.
