Here is an interesting area of the night sky in constellation Auriga.

I've never photographed these targets as a group before, and I really like it!

This is the lone test of the Canon EOS Ra through the RedCat 51 refractor at 250mm. If you couldn't already tell, I cropped the image in quite a bit. Sky gradients and a slight tilt issue meant the corners were not pretty.

The EOS Ra is a pleasure to use when attached to a telescope - but I've always been a DSLR guy so using this mirrorless full-frame beast is right up my alley.

Thanks for looking! Clear skies.
