Lunar imaging with DSO autoguider
While I'm still awaiting my field flattener for the Vixen ED80SF, I decided to play around with my autoguider a bit. Took the QHY-5 out of my guider and threaded it on to the Vixen. Shot a 2000 frame stack of the Moon yesterday in daylight, and unfiltered. Pre-processed in AVIStack 2, manually stitched and Post-processed in Photoshop. Here's the result of a 3 panel mosaic shot in 640x480 mode, @ ~35 fps.
