:lol: :lol: Hello,

We are using a PlaneWave 12.5 inch scope with a Planewave L350 mount. Using a new ZWO AS 1701 color camera. Would appreciate best setting for deep sky images. Please include settings for color space, file type, gain etc.

Hi Charles,

Use this feature to figure it out:

Reading the rest of the manual will help you decide which settings are best for your equipment and skies, it's very well written and quite informative.

Hope this helps,

Also, do you mean ZWO ASI071MC Pro instead?
