Description

What "Under 20" is for soccer, under 1 hour is for my DSO photography. Because of wind gusts I could use only the small Samyang 135mm and centered it on the Virgo Cluster for a wide view of galaxies too small to see without zooming in. No target for a wide lens though. Unfortunately, the galaxy region is else rather empty in absense of nebulae or bright stars. The image in the revision is a wide view inside the constellation of CrB. As you can see you can see no DSOs in there.

Hardly any unusual noise issues encountered in spite of working without calibration frames except a few flats. Also, PHD's multi-star guiding seems to work like a charm including manual dithering.
