Description

It seems that I meanwhile found the most suitable setting for attaching my Nikon lenses via the Geoptik adapter to my Astrel CCD camera. At 10mm focal length one obtains an impressive field-of-view: from cygnus to the soul nebula. I could take only 8 frames, each 5min, before condensation occured on the front lens.
