Starting the year with a widefield narrow band rig with 135mm f2.5 Asahi Super Takumar Lens as used on vintage SLR film cameras such as the Pentax Spotmatic.  These are superb quality lenses even at full aperture and all my imaging has been with full aperture.  Camera - ZWO ASI 1600MM-Cool with ZWO EFW and Astrodon 3nm filters.  Rig mounted on EQ8 and without guiding at first.  Capture with RPi 3 running INDI firmware and saved in Linux Mint desktop indoors running KStars/Ekos.
