Life's Little Successes: Round stars!

Description

Like many of us, between the pandemic and cloudy winter I pretty much modded/changed/tuned up all the astro gear I have...which means pretty much nothing was quite right when it was fired up again. Tilts in the optic train, backfocus spacing, software malfunctions, and of course anything new that never is quite right out of the box (you know the drill).

So a small success- all three of the last test runs with nice round stars right to the edges:

1. Top- Trying my SCT for DSO. No small feat to get round stars at 2000mm focal length, especially from a CG5 class, Onstep GoTo modded, mount.

2. The Apo (with its "new" camera)

3. My older full frame canon 5D with 135mm prime lens on Onstep GoTo modded Polaris (classic) mount
