Got myself a ZWO USB camera. Not the new 1600, but a 224. Its been a steep learning curve after my LN300 type camera. Here's some shots from the past few nights (80mm refractor f5.9, no reducer). I've been using it for a few weeks but it was a bit disappointing, then noticed that it got a lot nicer when I used a UV/IF filter. I'm using sharpcap, it can control the camera settings, and I'm using live stacking .
Last night Eta Carina, without then with UV/IR filter:
It certainly shows the advantage of the UV/IR filter. Nice and sharp
