Hi guys, thanks for your comments!

El Corazon, it was taken on suburban orange zone with lots of street light pollution.
I use 12nm Optolong filters , they capture some light pollution, but with some work, it gets out of the picture.

Also, great shot and lucky on that asteroid :-D
I have to capture the SII and see how it goes.

On the Solver Options (Astrometry.net) you should have an Overlay option. Disable that ant try again.

I am using the Orthographic projection but only because for me, it's the most visually appealing and it does not feel awkward when doing rotations on screen.
But tastes are tastes of course.

nMAC replied to the topic 'Moravian G2 8300 color - Supported?' in the forum. 3 months ago

Well I am using the mono version and it works very well. On the Moravian site they make no distinction on color and color and they say:
" Libraries and drivers supporting this standard are now available for all CCD cameras of the Gx series, connected through both USB and Ethernet."
I suppose the color model it's supported on INDI too.
