Last night I managed to image the Carina Nebula in NB.

Subs were 60 seconds each:
- 50 in Ha mapped to green
- 30 in OIII mapped to blue.
- 30 in SII mapped to red.

WO Star 71, iOptron CEM25P, ASI 1600 MM, Moonlight auto focus, Lodestar X2 guider OA.

I am going to grab some RGB images to replace the NB stars.

ASI 1600MM Pro, ASI 462MC
Moonlight Litecrawler (C11) and Motorfocus (WOStar71)
LodeStar X2 and ZWO OAG

Great pic! Very sharp and lots of details. Well done!

Question: how do you manage to take 110 subs of 60 minutes each in one night?

Yikes! That was supposed to be 60 seconds! :)
I just edited it. Thanks for the catch!

Haha OK great. Still, managing to collect 11 h of data on a single object in one night is impressive!
