Description

And one more first light with the new mount and scope. And also to see if I still remember how to upload images here. Been 4 years since my last imaging session.

edit 5/29/18...That dark band across the bottom is a shadow from the OAG prism. I just stuck the camera train on the 10" as setup for the Mak. Needed to lift the prism a touch.
