Here are a couple of images from recent nights, taken with the Atik One on an Equinox 80. Both are HaRGB images.
The first is the well-known Jellyfish Nebula, IC443 in Gemini. 30 x 5min Ha frames, and 15 x 3min each for R, G and B. The second is the lesser-known Lower’s Nebula, Sh2-261, in Orion: 20 x 5min Ha frames, and 9 x 3min each of R, G and B, all binned 2×2. I hadn’t come across this one before, and was pleasantly surprised how big and bright it was!
