Hold on, two clear nights in a row, this has to be some kind of record! After yesterdays failure tonight was a lot easier. Set up was quicker and I managed to set the Astrotrac to track this time.
My target was Orion with my Nikon D7000 and 105 macro lens. I have only captured an hours worth of data as my batteries werent fully charged by the results can be seen below:
It was so refreshing to be out imaging again with a quick set up and tear down time and I cant wait to take it away to some real dark skies. What it has told me, however is I need to work on my editing skills!
