Vixen Polarie +& FS-60 telescope? Possible.

Here I'm stretching my Vixen Polarie's capacity by using a Takahashi FS-60 telescope with it.
Mount was a solid NEQ6. So the weakest link here was the Ball head. Clearly need upgrading asap.

This Andromeda shot was taken without a CLS filter.
Project Polarie+FS-60 looks promising otherwise.
