Description

This is a very rough draft of Ic434. Done with Ioptron CEM120EC mount. Attached to mount were meade 12"lx850 acf with ZWO1600mm , ES 102 FCD100 with ZWO 294mcpro, and RASA 11" with zwo 094mc pro. total 5 exposures of 120 sec each telescope. all was done on same mount at the same time. was very impressed at round stars with all that weight on the mount. guiding was used and RMS was about 0.9. I will try much longer exposers next time.
