After many months of tinkering and trial and error, I'm very happy with my first picture of Vega using myálatest adquisition, a HutecháLPS IDAS for my Canon 40DH.á Also, as I had shared with Neil, I had a really annoying USB problem in previous computer system that invalidated about 50% of images on any session, and I had to end up buying a new computer and rebuilding the whole system again, fortunately, the problem seems to be gone as I've been able to do 4 hour un-attended sessions of ETA Drako (a very bright star) with no problems.
 
I know that the image is not very impressive for what we are used to see in MOAJ but after spending months with an Astronomik CLS filter that gave a color shift so high in blue and green that clipped the image, I had to sell the filter, re-do my darks, flats, and bias library and...start all over with my Hutech.
 
I'm super happy because beyond the fact that this image is only 1 hour and it was taken from Portland Downtown, you can actually see blue, yellow and other star colors while filtering out LP.á It is a truly beautiful filter.á And I did not even process the image, this is straight out from DSS.
 
...and yes, Vega is so bright that you can actually see the reflection on my second mirror on my picture, but I don't care as I won't be taking pictures of monter stars like this one but focusing on other beautiful objects as soon as we get clear skies.
 
Image adquision: Nebulosity
Exposure: 2min. x 30
DSS: 30 flats, 30 darks, 30 bias
Chip temp: 64f
Humidity: 90%
Processing: Just DSS :)
 
 
Enjoy it...more to come when the weather gets better...á

Hey Miquel, very nice! It's nice to not see electric blue, or overwhelming red. Congratulations on dialing the system in another step.

He ampliat l'imatge bastant i efectivament existeix una diferencia de colors evident, tambe s'observa que el "bitxo" ara estß molt be de colimaciˇ, bona feina, felišitats.
