Wednesday night I took 400 photos of Epsilon Bootis (mag. 2.4 / 5.1, sep. 2.9") with my Canon 650 D, Takahashi FC-100DL and 2.8x Barlow (resulting focal length: about 2500 mm; focal ratio: f/25). The seeing was "so-so". Here is the best of these 400 shots (ISO 3200, exposure time 1/250 second); it's a single frame (no stacking):

Ausgezeichnet; und nur ein 100mm! It's never looked quite that good in my Tak FS 128.
