A couple of days back we had a clear night. So out came the telescope, and the first efforts to get the thing aligned and tracking right commenced!
Orion was the target, and after having made a single 10 seconds exposure and seeing Orion appear on the screen of the camera I was dancing around the scope. Must have been a funny sight. Luckily for me around 2 O’Clock there are not all that many people awake to see me act silly.
Anyhow, after having made various exposures and having them stacked and merged into one image the following is the result. I am quite pleased with it!
