Horsehead with C14

I am testing an incredible camera this weekend (just have it for three days), and I took this color image of the Horsehead and NGC 2023. This is a reduced-size image; the original is 2048x2048. The camera is a Finger Lakes IMG 4240, with 13.5-micron pixels. It's a nice high-res, large-chip camera to use with the C14, that's for sure!

hi,

Great Image! This is makeing me want to buy a C14. I've seen other images from C14's and IMHO its a great scope for the money ... compares well with the RC's for 1/4 the price.

Did you use the native focal ratio or a FR ? What about the mirror flop problem and the focuser, how did you work out these problems ?

clear skies,

Hi Ron,

looks like Finger Lakes will be very satisfied with your tests! Another great image of you.

Thanx
Tom

Hi Ron,

I don't have much experience in DSO imaging so
me commenting on your fantastic images is a little
like a layman telling Leonardo Davinci the Mona Lisa
looks good .
That Horse head image is certainly the best one I have
had the pleasure of viewing , GREAT! IMAGE!

Thanks,

Wes Higgins

wonderful details, Ron, never seen so many subtle details also in the bright blue nebula (thanks to you processing skills!).

How is the noise and blooming, compared to the ST10XME?
