Astrophotography with absolute minimum equipment.🙂
While my scope was imaging the Tulip Nebula, I used a second camera, an unmodified Canon 600D, a 24mm f2,8 and a video tripod to image the milky way. 10 sec is the longest possible exposure time without tracking. I was really surprised how well that came out, with only 6 min of total integration time.😃
