Finally a clear night to test out my new camera equipment (ZWO ASI1600MM + Electronic Filter Wheel) to replace my aging Canon 450D DSLR. This was my first attempt at combining LRGB filtered images into one composite image. The image shows much finer detail than my previous DSLR image of the same object due to the higher resolution and wider dynamic range.
