Fisrt image, with Zwo ASI174 MC
« on: 15:37:11, 06 July, 2017 »
This is my first image, of the moon,  after approximately three year break, and to be honest, my first attempt,  was very shaky to say the least.
 was on the verge of selling all my kit, adverts were written, photos were taken,  but something  stopped me from selling it.  so I sent my C11HD  for a service, as it was in a bad way, cleaned  mount, and purchased a new camera, which is the ZWO ASI174 MC.
 anyway, went out last night  purely to do a dry run,  to make sure I remembered how to set everything up, and decided as the moon was there to just power the camera
 so I managed to get this image, just prior to some heavy cloud cover,  it's about 20 seconds of data, using sharpCap,  My telescope that I used,  is my 123 triple Apo,  on a CGEM DX mount,  and stacked in auto stacker,  can you give me some advice please on some settings to possibly try, many thanks, Dave

Nice Moon shot,   

I can't give any info on settings though,  Id say just keep an eye on the histogram to make sure that your not over exposing.
