Description

Believe it or no.. this was my first astro image ever.... That day all gear was new and the day was very clear ( green zone ) Amealco Mexico.

I did all the steps for a good picture from leveling the tripod to do a 3 star alingment and a focus with a bahtinov mask.

Camera is a Canon T6 unmodified . 30 x 30 seconds at ISO 800. Just 10 darks.

All I can say is that William optics WO star 71 II is a world class astrograph.
