I've had so much fun with this camera since I got it in february :)
I have even been able to take photos during windy weather which was impossible before when I was guiding..
Here is an image that turned out really great taking into account the small scope and simple mount. Seeing was cooperating as well which was nice.

For me 4-8 sec subs seems to be the sweet spot. Mostly using gain between 400 and 500.
More details in the image footer.

Very impressive image. Congrats.

Could you detail how did you processed it? (Capture software, stacking and post-processing)

Thanks :)
Yes this is the uncooled version. Not sure if there is a need for cooling when using such short exposures, but just guessing here..

Thanks, Sure I used DSS for stacking and then GIMP for post processing. Stretched the image then applied wavelet sharpen on the brighter areas of the image. Don't think I used wavelet denoise at all but might have as a last step..
