Description

Original image : Mild Edit

First test run with the Starizona 0.4X F4 Night Owl reducer designed for the EDGEHD series SCT's (In Prototype phase).

Note: bottom right of frame is due to slight sensor tilt. In addition, I had not fine tuned my guidescope to be parallel for this initial run, therefore I did experience a small amount of drift.

More detail will follow via a CN thread.
