Description

I'm finding that with the moon and the clouds and the rain I never have enough time to spend on a target so I'm setting up a dual rig which will I hope halve my integration time. So I'm shooting luminance with a Ha filter on my atik 383L+ through my fs60 -cb Tak and colour with a cheap 300mm lens and my canon 600d which is fitted with a CLS light pollution reduction filter. Total integration time was just one hour. Can't wait to using this set up away from the city lights!
