First image of M42 – with Altair Astro 183M mono camera on EQ6 mount/Sky Watcher Equinox 80mm Pro telescope

I have taken my first ever image of M42 tonight – using my new 183M camera

Due to problems with balance of the cameras on the scope I was limited to 20 sec exposures tonight (I just replaced QHY10 with 183M which did not work re: balance!)

So this is a stretched single frame without calibration frames.
