Description

Test image with C8 SCT and Televue TRF2008 reducer. It is made for 400-600mm refractors. Seems to work well with C8 SCT too!

Reduction factor is 0.8x.

total 30min with 2min subs, EOS600D, ISO1600. No filters. Weather was little foggy, -5C and my scope corrector get frozen from inside!, i need to take scope in and dry it well, weather has been so wet in December that scope seems to get moisture in cold observatory.
