Description

I was surprised with this image as I am only shooting at 556mm. I truly need a longer focal length but happy with how it's coming out with the Z81 as at least the galaxies are not looking super small like on the Z61ii. Since this is my first light with the Z81 I am very pleased with how it's handling broadband and narrowband images and very glad I pulled the trigger on it. Just because it's no triple or quad glass does not mean you can not get good pictures with good color.
