Description

This was a test of a portable setup to take to my dark site. Unfortunately, I forgot to take calibration files.

Lens is an 85mm, stopped down to F2.4; camera is my Canon T3i. No polar alignment - more of a guestimate, and very basic calibration of my mount (an AVX). I aimed at the Crescent Nebula (visible, just to the left of center).

Image scale is 10.3"/pixel, and a 15 degree FoV.
