He wrote: "NGC2175, an open star cluster embedded in a big cloud of stellar dust, is a nursery for new stars in our galaxy... The Astrel Instruments AST8300 is a great working horse - maintaining the vacuum literally for months, reliability of the mechanics and the software is awesome - it never lets me down!"

Neb. OU4 e SH2-129 by Stefano Conti

Neb. OU4 e SH2-129 by Stefano Conti

Camera: AST8300B Telescope: Takahashi FSQ106 Fluorite Filters: Astrodon RGB, Baader Ha/OIII Background and stars acquisition (90min): sequential RGB poses (180s ea). Extremely faint diffused nebula contrast enhanced by dedicated exposures with filters Ha (for SH2-129) and OIII (for OU4). Faint blue emission of the nebula (OIII filter) enanched by 2x2 binning increasing by x4 the S/N (thanks to lack of fine features in this area). The blue OIII channel required an overall integration of 20h.

N. America Nebula by Tommy Nawratil

N. America Nebula by Tommy Nawratil

“Taken with AST8300B using Astronomik Deepsky and NB filters on Takahashi's FSQ106 with 0,73x reducer at 385mm. It is a 6 channel mix, LRGB+Ha12nm+OIII12nm. I worked also on the subtle structures inside nebula mass, and brought out the shock fronts using an orange color tint for the brighter Ha parts. That looks a little like false color, but it isn't exactly. OIII was mixed in almost between green and blue, the resulting color with Ha is almost whitish, resembling the colors a of a DSLR pic.”

"The AST8300B once again proved to be a reliable working horse! It even, after more than two months unused at the scope, had not lost its vacuum!! I am working with my 10" f/4.5 DIY Newton (R.Royce conical mirror) and MGEN off axis guiding. Also, I am using the Astrel Instruments flat-generator for the AST8300 with the Gerd Neuman flatfield panel. 3 x 2h (600sec subs), all processing in Pixinsight, labeling and exporting in PS."

“The (second) best use of the very long winter nights here in Northern Germany! And astrophotography certainly is fun with the great AST8300B camera! Object: IC410 with NGC1893 Scope: DIY 10" f/4.5 Royce Newton with MGEN at OAG Mount: EQ-8 Location: my backyard observatory, near Hamburg, Germany Total exposure was 6h 30min of 900sec subs for Ha, S2 and O3 NB filters (Astronomik) + darks, bias' and flats. All editing in Pixinsight, except for the frame and signature (PS)."
