Hi everyone,
If you follow me on Instagram you know that I've been working on a new wide field configuration of my 80mm apo. I also have switched to my DSLR temporarily because my 178 has such a small FOV. Using a DSLR allows me to capture larger targets which I've never imaged. Hopefully one day I can afford an ASI 294 or 1600 (but it's unlikely on a teacher salary). But for the time being, I am going back to my roots with an uncooled camera
