Description

Very pleased with my first attempt at off axis guiding ... so pleased I made a crazy video about it. (FYI I make documentaries for Discovery and Nat Geo for my job... but these astro vids are just for fun)

In this one my wife finds out how much my telescope cost... eek, I attempt to shoot two colliding galaxies, we take off in an Saturn 5 space rocket, prove the earth is flat and Riktenstien performs his amazing Colliding Galaxy Megazoom Tune LIVE. If it sounds bonkers then that's cos it is... enjoy!!!
