    I wasn't sure that moving from DSLR to dedicated astrocamera was the right move, until now. First couple images from ZWO ASI 294MP PRO 11MP cooled camera were disappointing. Didn't know if it would even compete with the 24mp size of DSLR. This latest capture of the Triffid, on a warm summer night, has confirmed that the purchase of this camera from Agena Astro was right move. Stacked fits and color came out very well, along with smooth image even at 11mp.

    Absolutely beautiful, squeege! Trifid is always on my summer short list of summer DSOs to observe. I've cooled down a bit on the imaging side after my Mars perigee marathon (but 2020 is just around the corner). I'm glad to see you are doing such great work with your cameras :)
