Description

Testing out my new ZWO EFWmini with a quick shot of M42.

Also testing Sequence Generator Pro out as well - I think I'm getting a good idea of how to make it do what I want.

Spikes are from Baader Turbofilm I put over the objective to protect it from all the pollen we get this time of year. I think I have it stretched a little too tight.
