While limited with clear skies and by so this will not be the best Iris shot, this is my first attempt to test the new QHY600 with a 3 hours acquisition RGB on the AG Optical 12.5 iHW OTA. Since the iHW gives about the same FL as my previous 10" F5 newton OTA, we can appreciate the wide field of the QHY600-iHW combo and high QE of the camera if we compare this image with the previous Iris I have taken 3 years ago.

Mode 0 - Gain 26 - Offset 10

This camera seems to be a winner!
