Description

I am just starting to actually be able to take some images - much to learn still. This was taken with an Astrotech AT65EDQ which I would recommend to anyone getting starting in AP - I used a Celestron AVX mount and an ASI ZWO1600MC-Cooled - After many years of struggling with fork mount SCT's and taking advise to get a GEM, it has been so much easier to learn with - very excited to get an image of something I can recognize!
