Description

This is my ‘First Light’ image from my new UnistellareVscope 2. It was taken in Bortle 8-9 from Windsurfer Point, Lake Hefner, in Oklahoma City. Weather was clear, with light haze, and slight wind. I stacked the images for 6 minutes and got a fairly decent shot for my first attempt and first image from my new scope in poor viewing conditions.
