Description

First light with Williams Optics Zenithstar II 80mm APO F/6.8.
Quite a nice little scope. Optics are superb.

Also first light doing narrowband with my new ZWO ASI 1600mm. I must say I am impressed with the results.

Coming from imaging with a CCD, the gain / offset settings can be quite fiddly, however the results speak for themselves. All part of the growth process...
