I was experimenting with a different setup this weekend, an alt-azimuth mounted Newtonian for visual observing (not a Dobsonian) While observing some of the lovely sights in Puppis like M93, NGC 2467, and the lovely gold Xi Pup, I came across a neat triple near Omicron Pup.
South 561 is rather wide, quite conspicuous, and has a slight color contrast. The Milky Way field here is full of faint doubles, especially around field star AD Pup. I was able to both sketch it Friday evening and photograph it on Saturday. The imaging was unplanned. But given the view, I wanted to capture it for later study.
Doing this without tracking requires very short exposures and high ISO, opposite of what my prior experience has taught. After a few tries and lots of deleted blurry trails, I got something somewhat useable.
Im pretty excited that it worked!
