First light with Atik 314+

Managed to test the new camera last night, more to make sure it works and to practice using the capture software.
 
I only had a Neodymium filter so popped the into the filter wheel more to protect the sensor than anything else (set of Narrowband filters arriving today :) ).
 
Well I got something at least, it works and it was good practice for a real go when the weather allows and I have my filters.
 
No calibration frames and both are a stack of only 5 x 300s lights, So noisy and a quick process in PS.
