Description

I had high hopes for this one but, as the gods willed, it was beset with hardware issues coming to roost, namely the focuser started to flip-flop when moved in and out, thus causing the sensor tlting this way and that with obvious consequences in the star quality off-axis. Still, I'd consider it an improved version with respect to my previous LRGB composite.
