Last night I finally had a few hours of hole in the skies. Not really as much as I had hoped for this target.

New equipment. Need longer backfocus before its perfect.

 

Explore scientific 102CF F7, TS 0,79xreducer

Canon eos800D, 35x240sek iso 800.

Lacerta mgen 3 guiding, TS 60/240 scope

 

Click for better resolution/full size. Did not crop, left corner stars the way they were. (Perhaps someone would evaluate my guess of adding 1-1½mm of backfocus for next time?)

Little reddish but good detail.

Yes, corner stars tell that needs more space between reducer and camera.

Thanks

I get that a lot. I am still a beginner.

Here is a new try:
