Description

I normally use a D5300, but I have a D3400 I have long used for infrared terrestrial photography, so I decided to give it a try. It uses the same sensor as the 5300, but is lighter and has a little longer battery life without a lot of the extra features. I was going to use my 8" Newtonian, but I obviously don't have my new focuser properly aligned, so I grabbed the AT92 and APEX. This target fits well in the field of view. Back spacing is still a work in progress.
