Description

I had to wait many weeks for this picture: the weather was bad, and for a beginner it's quite a challenge to master the C925 EdgeHD. Initially, I set up my gear yesterday evening because I wanted to practise the collimation and do some observing. In opposite to the weatherforcast, the sky remained clear and I quickly added a camera. Surprisingly the picture turned out quite good, but of course still is far from being perfect.
