    What fl were you shooting at?

    30 second subs. Fine job!

    Thanks,

    Jim,

    Thank you for your kind words ... this is a proof of concept image for me. Ready to go out and get more images to integrate.

    BTW, I had my Canon 55-250mm zoom lens maxed out at 250mm. Since I am using an APS-C camera does that mean it is roughly equal to a 400mm telescope??

    Thank you!

    When I used the NexStar mount I had to look through all the images and throw out the ones where the stars weren't round. My yield of good images was usually in the 50-70% range which was always disheartening (because I was throwing away 30-50% of the images). When I tried imaging longer than 30 sec images I had a much lower "success" rate. Eventually I gave up and went to an equatorial mount.

    Best of success with your setup. Hopefully it will perform better than mine did.

    I hope to get an EQ mount too, but in the meantime ... I know I can happily image with what I have ... I just need darker skies than Houston!
