Description

Finally i´ve got my new Takahashi Epsilon 130 :)
Because the weather were fine i went with my friend Marcus Wögerer for the firstlight to my favourite astro-location the "Ebenwaldhöhe" in lower austria.
I thought due to the excellent south view the lagoon nebula M8 should be my first target for this brilliant piece of telescope.
The resolution and the speed of this beast is absolutely amazing. To show the performance i decided to upload the image in full resolution. So feel free to zoom in ;)
Due this session i´ve captured a fireball which came from the zenith to the south. This one was the biggest i´ve ever seen- fortunately it crossed exactly my field of view. So just for fun i combinated the single lightframe with the final image (revision C)
Clear skies everyone
