    Default Good, bad, ugly (AP over the past couple nights)



    I'm out almost every clearish night eating up hard drive space, this is shots from the past couple days. It has white light solar, globs, galaxies, nebulae and all shot from my white zone backyard. While it could be better, this album was mostly an exercise to learn the moods of my "new to me" Altair 183C v1. It was to see how it deals with sort/rapid stacks needed for my live streams. Made a bunch of silly mistakes (like using the wrong flat/dark) while capturing some of these, but still had fun.

    Do you have any links to your images that do not point to Facebook? I would love to see the images you have taken with your 183C as I have just invested in this same camera (Hypercam 183C Pro). I don't do Facebook so cannot view images. Thanks in advance.
