Wow, yesterday no clouds in the sky, the night. Maybe the second clear night since January here…
So I tried my new refractor takahashi FS-60CB.
What a good telescope. With its focal of 370 it is used for wide field. But seriously, the field is really good. No possible comparison with a lens. Even a pro lens from Canon. As you may know, stars are the best objects to test the lens quality.
So yesterday I tried to use my refractors with a small computer, the tinkerboard. On this later was installed Kstars/ekos and phd2 (all free software) to automate my night session.
What a pleasure, seriously. Even if I only shot one hour because of … clouds.
So my result is not exceptional, but it is a good first light.
