I purchased an ASI2600MC Pro from another member here in the classifieds. I paired it with a Skywatcher Evostar 72ED with 0.8 reducer on a brand new EQ6-R Pro mount. What a huge difference this setup made. This is from a quick EAA session, live stacked in Sharpcap Pro, with some minor editing in Lightroom on my phone. Maybe one of these days I'll get into true AP. I only used dark frames and lights for these images. First image shows Alnitak, in the center of the image, with B33 (the Horsehead Nebula) and NGC 2024 (the Flame Nebula). Second image is M42 (the Orion Nebula(, NGC 1975 (the Running Man Nebula) and NGC 1980 (the Lost Jewel of Orion).
