Description

This is a repost as astrobin appears to have experienced some data loss and my original post got deleted.

This is a first light image for a Stellarvue SV80-3SV along with my first attempt at guiding. The subject matter is much too small for my field of view, but the larger objects were hiding behind the trees.

Despite the issues I had getting decent guiding performance the image scale was forgiving enough to still get round stars. After I processed the image I decided I liked it enough to share despite the small subject size.
