LBN 576 (also known as Abell 85 and CTB 1) is a large supernova remnant in Cassiopeia.
It was initially catalogued by George Abell as a planetary nebula, but it soon became clear that it was an SNR. It was also recognized as a radio source and thus given the designation CTB 1... Read more

This image of M101 is the first taken with two cameras working simultaneously.
One camera, STL-1000M, on Takahashi TOA-150 @ f/7.3 for luminance data and the other, Canon 60Da, on Takahashi FSQ-106N @ f/5.0 for RGB data.
The main camera is the STL. It is controlled by CCDCommander and CCDSoft, with the main chip used for luminance acquisition and the secondary chip for guiding (and dithering). Read more

I am setting up a process to be able to shoot with two cameras simultaneously (with full synchronization between them): One camera on TOA-150 to take luminance and the other on FSQ-106N for color.
While I have solved the software aspects of the synchronized handling of the two cameras (thanks to AstroArt), continued confinements due to the pandemic have prevented me from finishing the hardware aspects. Read more
