Description

This picture was a test for the new Lacerta Motorfocus, how well would it be able to cope with the temperature drift of FSQ106. The temperature probe was packed tightly to the tube and well isolated against outside air. The factor programmed was 34µm per degree Celsius. Finally, during the two nights I did not refocus at all, and all raw frames from these two nights were perfectly sharp in focus! A full size pic is presented along with a crop on M106
