Inspired with easybob95 work with ASI178MC and Canon FD 50mm f1.4, I captured some MilkyWay Sagittarius video. Captured with Amazon Fire Tablet and ZWO Android ASICAP. Gain set to max 510 and exposure on auto lead to 0.25 FPS and 4 second exposures. Not bad for $30 tablet and $40 lens. Small and light grab and go.

Cool! I'm about to try this, too. It's pretty light weight setup and seems to give nice results!

Nice.

 

That area of sagittarius is so interesting.

 

I did that same thing a week or so ago too, with an IMX224 camera and a $40 17mm aperture F1.4 (25mmFL) security lens, no tracking, just stacking 4s exposures on a GSO manual mount.

 

Not as pretty as yours (smaller image scale and poorer skies):

Nice work. This gives me some ideas for a project I have in mind. Thanks for posting.
