Nicely done Andrea.  I like your processing - gentle, not pushed.

Hello Andrea,

Beautiful photo of IC434.  I am new to the group and am wondering about your "nomad" set up.  Is your set up on a tripod with "wheels" or do you have to tear it down to take it outside?
Is it possible for you to post a photo showing the lower part of your set up.  I just put myself on the list for a MACH2GTO.  I currently have a system where I wheel my set up out of the garage into the driveway to do my imaging.

Jim

Hi,
I am happy to share my first picture with the mount.
I hope it is not off topic, but please tell me.
After years running an observatory I came back to a nomad set up and I have chosen the MACH2.
The mount is perfect for my set up at 24 kg all included.

It is a Newton corrected and illuminated over a KAF 16803.

At the following link my first image , hope you like it.

Thanks for sharing.

Clear skies,
