Description

280mm @ f/5.6

First light with the MGEN II Auto Guider.

Unfortunately, because of upcoming clouds I could not reach the astronomical twilight...

But I'm very impressed by the guider! Finally I can eliminate the periodic error of my Star Adventurer.

Usually between 40% and 70% of my subs was usable. Today I was able to double the exposure time and I had perfect pin point stars on all subs... on 100% of the subs!!! I can't believe it ;-)

Great investment!
