Description

Was bored with the newton's FOV, so wanted to experiment with the C11 and the Nikon. The Antares reducer doesn't correct the optical path at all, so had to crop most of the image. Anyway, experiments with MPCC show promising results.

Note the 14.4mag galaxy IC1296 just below the Ring Nebula.
