Description

Not content with buying a single new camera, I got two. Hoping to run both at once to capture data faster on those rare clean nights. This is a test of the ASI294MC Pro and Samyang 135mm f/2 from my home which is a few kilometres from the centre of Brisbane city (Australia.) I think it did pretty well considering the terrible light pollution.

Sorry that I'm picking much the same FOV each time for my tests
