Sharpless 274 with the QSI 683

First real picture with the new camera.




As noted in the earlier post, this was a sum of RGB and Luminance data.

The RGB comes from 7 Blue, 9 Green, and 9 Red subs at 600 second durations.
The Luminance is from 15 subs also at 600 seconds.

Shot using the Stellarvue SV4 scope with flattener.

I'm happy enough with the image.  The sky isn't fully dark as there's still glow from streetlights.  I look forward to getting up to MBOSP to see how it looks different up there.
