Yet another try with the QHY5 on M42 :

I will try to filter the power supply to get less horizontal noise.

 

Happy new year !

I'm still working on the QHY5 support on qastrocam-g2. Things are going well ;-)

 

My first real deep sky with the QHY5 :

14x20s frames, gain at 50%, D=120mm, F=500mm, IR filter

 

This picture needs more pre-processing, but the QHY5 can give nice deep sky pictures ;-)

 

Best regards !
