ASI2600MM Pro

Last night I was asked by a friend of mine could I process some Ha data for her, of the Rosette nebula. The data was taken with the ASI2600MM. After seeing members extol the virtues of the ASI2600MC, I jumped at the chance to see how good this camera was.

 

I was not disappointed by the performance of this camera, the results are quite staggering. The equipment used was an EQ6 R and an ED 80, so nothing really high end. The data was processed the usual way in Pixinsight, using darks, and flats calibrated with dark flats. The image integration time is 55 minutes. I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't processed the data myself. Not only is the result fantastic, but the dark master showed very little amp glow, just a smidge on the edge, plus some hot pixels.

 

This camera is definitely going on my ever expanding wish list.

I'm drooling 🤤That's a significant step up from the 1600. 

 

Mercifully the weather is so bad it will take several years before I can exhaust my current camera's  possibilities and justify the upgrade 😁

Isn't it just. The noise is minimal with this camera and the data is very sharp. Post processing must be a doddle.

I’m tempted too. A lot of dosh though. I hear people saying they’ve had to increase the filter sizes to 36mm to minimise vignetting as the 31mm ones did cause dark corners. That will push the costs up too. Maybe a bit later for me.

Larger filters and a larger filter wheel would push the cost close to 4500 euro with decent filters. A lot of money, but the quality is astounding.
