Description

This was just a test, but appears to be my most amazing "super-small-gear vs. high-magnification-deep-sky" image! :D
I tested my new guider for my star adventurer with my Maksutov Cassegrain, because I am not able to mount my guider anywhere else at the moment. So I pointed it onto Orion for some frames to see if the guiding works. And it does! At least on my balcony without any wind..
