First Try with the ASI 1600MMC and Canon Lenses. Well the Asi Adapter for Lenses is absolutely unusable, the 135mm Lens will not really be fixed so a strong tilting can be seen in the Picture. Here I will Need another one.
Also the NB Filters are absolutely not parafocal at f 3.5. Need to try it at higher f or focus every filter. Only the O3 was really focussed, Ha was bad and S2 nearly not usable. Because 2 other Telescopes were on the same mount while this session, i was not able to focus, or i had to pause the other ones always while focusing. So i let it run....
