Description

Guiding test MGEN Autoguider. The hazy sky and the full moon are a bad, bad condition for astrophotography, but I wanted to try my new MGEN. And as it seems, this guider is very comfortable and its easy to find stars whitout a eyepiece. The dithering-Option is also very nice, witch I enabled for this test. At least, its a great step from my old Skywatcher Synguider.
