Hi to all! I want to show the results of capturing from my mini-setup:

-Samyang 135\2.0 ED lens

-QHY5III178m camera (1\1.8", 3072x2048).

-Sky-Watcher Adventurer mount.

 

Despite its small size, this equipment allows us to successfully capture big nebulae.

That's a nice looking little rig!  I'm sure it will be quite portable.

Hi
Nice pictures, I have similar settings and I have captured nice images with that. Just curious, why do you need the guider considering you have an exposure time of 60s?
I found out that I can do up to 4 min with round stars at that particular FL without a guider.

A small monochrome pixel is more demanding on accuracy of tracking. In addition, there is no auto-guiding along the DEC axis. Autoguide noticeably reduces the number of defective frames.

Have you tried without the autoguider? I just think that at 60s for that particular focal length the autoguider is not necessarily. I use DSLR which is less sensitive but yes larger pixels and I get round stars as well as with my ASI 1600. I just think the guiding adds more complexity to such a simple setting.

Yes, I tried without autoguider. With a small focus and a color camera, there are no special problems, although there are still defective frames. The autoguide is configured in a couple of minutes, so I try to always use it.
