Description

This is first light from SkyEyE Observatory with our now AG Optical FA14, a 14.5" f5 reflector.
Despite the bad collimation and no flats i'm pretty happy with this as first light for the scope.
The scope was no collimated before first lights as we had to figure out the imaging train first to get correct distance for the extremely short Optec Gemini focuser with 12.7mm travel.
