This was a wonderful observation night with my lovely wife. Of course I wasn't allowed to take pictures because then she gets bored 😘 But she was fascinated by the double star Albireo where you can see the red and blue even in the eyepiece and asked me to take a quick picture.
So I made a few lights with only manual polar alignment and no guiding. 60 seconds and the stars where nice and round, I guess this was just good luck 🙂
This one is for Schnucki 💖
