Description

Started as a fun project, I was amazed by the high resolution of the tiny Samyang lens (focal length 135mm) in combination with the ASI178' 2.4 micron pixels (3x drizzled)! The lens was stopped down to F/2.8 and as I don't use active guiding, I reduced the exposure time to 15 seconds to avoid blurry stars. The finished stack is a selection of the best 50% of over 800 frames!
Enjoy!
