It was cold but worse it was windy
I was forced to go small to reduce wind footprint
I used my 5.5 inch comet catcher f3.6

2 sec 6 sec and one old shot at 14 with same scope before star popped.

Nice capture! Here's a timelapse I did of it with an 8" SCT and Mallincam. I fiddled about with the exposure settings at first, but settled on 30 second integrations after the first few minutes. 2 hours of footage compressed into 17 seconds, no other alterations.

Jon, Really nice shots. Isn't wind a pain?

ngchunter, Great video and a wonderful example of field rotation too.
