Description

Captured the same night as my earlier image (https://www.astrobin.com/350096/?nc=user) but using a 5x PowerMate instead of a 2.5x.

I also tried placing a T-spacer between the PowerMate and camera to experiment with pushing the magnification a little further (per this chart from TeleVue). Final magnification estimated to be approx. 6x (f/60).

Excellent transparency and good seeing (Pickering scale = 7).
