Description

This is the first picture with the Sharpstar Astrograph. This is a 8" F3.2 parabolic Newton wiht corrector. Fl is 640mm. This is just a quick picture after principle alignment and some small adjustments. For first light its really promising. The pciture was 110 min only with 3 min subs and the Nikon D750 set at ISO 1600. The Halo around the bright stars is from the NB1 Filter and not from the scope.
