I had a go with the Altair Astro 60 EDF on the Skywatcher Star Adventurer mount last night, really just to see how well it tracked. These are stacks of 10 x 120 sec subs with the modded Canon 1000D. The Flame and Horsehead is a combination with 30 sec subs to try to avoid some of the star bloat. This was caused by the absence of a UV/IR block filter. Silly me. :roll: :roll: :roll:

Gorgeous Brian. The stars seem to have a 3-D quality about them.
