But on Friday night, the sky became very clear with no clouds overhead. Hence I took out my portable setup to try imaging with this camera. Continue reading ZWO ASI1600MM-cool – first light

This could be particularly useful bearing in mind its slightly larger sensor, for documenting the UV-pattern of flowers or of the human skin (bruises, sun-damage etc). I picked a Buttercup flower from my back garden and used this as my subject for testing its UV-imaging capability. Continue reading ZWO ASI1600MM-cool – UV imaging
