Description

A widefield around M97 and M108 in UMa, including lots of galaxies and the bright star Merak. Samyang 135mm at f/2 and Eos600da at Iso400.

This is first light with Skywatcher's new Star Adventurer Mini (SAM). This small head can be controlled via WiFi using a mobile or tablet, running the SAM console. It allows for a variety of astro/timelapse/TWAN photography. Tracking was perfect, all frames were useable.
