Observing location
Albox, ALmeria, Spain
Paramount MyT
8-inch RC Telescope
ZWO 1600 Mono Camera
Filters LRGB
60 seconds per sub

60 second exposures each:

10 Luminosity, 5 Red, 5 Green, 5 Blue.

I used the SkyX to capture the images but used Luminosity 4 to align and stack and generate a colour image, saved as a TIF file. It was the first time that I had used Luminosity and found it very straightforward to use. 

The details from the plate solved image gave a resolution of 0.48 arc-seconds per pixel and showed that the cameras was only 22 minutes of arc away from North at the top. 

Note that the image is a screen capture of a screen capture to get below the 2MB limit.
