Description

Here is one of my closeups, not really sharp but okay for my eyes. Originally i had planned to change the reducer to a barlow, but this rebuild would have cost me about 20 minutes. And i knew that clouds were on the way, so i used the ROI-function of the camera to realize a smaller FoV with a way higher framerate (70 FPS compared to 8 FPS).
