Set up Star adventurer mini for a few 60 second runs with a rough polar align in a very dark area a way from our hotel, only had 12 minutes astro darkness so had to work quickly . It was spookily dark ... Could see the milky way faintly reflected on the ocean. As the moon started to clear the mountains a Polish chap appeared with his camera but no tripod so we managed to communicate and I let him put his camera on my Sam. Then again as packing up a German chap arrived so we did the same again for him. It was quite interesting trying to explain the Sam and how it worked. Here is the one decent image I managed, as you can see when zooming in, focus is off ? Still a nice memory of a holiday booked by the wife as it's a beautiful dark island ( coinsided with full moon though) Thanks for looking. Single Raw file converted with Nikon NX2 and contrast tweaked in CS2. 60 seconds @ F4 and ISO 3200
Had an interesting chat by email with the SAM app devs. I suggested to them that incorporating dithering (obviously only in one axis though) in the app would be a nice feature. They emailed back saying nice idea they will try to implement it .
