****** ENG: I recently made some changes to my "secondary" equipment, I sold some items and I bought (both second-hand) a Canon 60D Baader modified and a Star Adventurer astro-tacker. This is the second shot with this setup. I used a cheap 70-300 Canon telephoto lens @70 mm. Polar alignement was reasonable but not good. It does not look so bad to me! ^_^

****** ITA: recentemente ho cambiato un po' la mia attrezzatura "secondaria". Ho venduto la fida 450, e comprato (usati) una 60D baaderizzata e uno Star Adventurer. Questa è la seconda immagine in assoluto. L'obiettivo è un economico Canon 70-300 usato a 70 e a tutta apertura (e si vede). Ma nel complesso non mi sembra malaccio.
