Description

Second image taken with the Redcat Apo Petzval from my backyard under a sky of 20.4 SQM
Confirmation that this lightweight setup is working well and is very well adapted for travelers
The configuration is up and running in less than 15'. The focus remained stable even after a drop of 4° C all along the 2 hours of time exposure. No guiding necessary thanks to an accurate polar alignment with the Pole master camera
