Description

Hi,

One of the picture I made during my great night of the 10 may.
Target : Antares region.
An occasion to try my new portable mount, the Fornax Lightrack II.
Great tracking, the 2 min subs are great, but I think I have to collimate my polar scope again to get more accuracy.

Nex3N, nikon 300 at f4, mounted on Lightrack II.
52x2 min at 800 ISO.
