Description

I wanted to test my Skywatcher Star Adventurer with a few images of the Milky Way center but the result was so good that I decided to shoot a lot of subs. That was one of my clearest moonless nights! The tracking was very good (zoom in, you’ll see!), we can even see some details on M8 & M20 with a 70mm focal length!
The star on the lower right is Saturn.
Lens @ f/4.
This test was a success, I guess ^^.
