Neptune was close to  a mag 10 star last night so I observed it visually with the C11 and then popped the camera into the focuser.  11 x 1 sec subs. Triton showed up nicely.

That's very nice. We don't get many eeva reports on planets. Why didn't you use the telescope with it's native focal length?

I was actually planning to hunt out a nearby galaxy cluster and  needed to be at a faster focal ratio so I did not want to to find Neptune and then have to add the focal reducer and refocus.......but you are right I should have gone for it at f 10. Next time....... Mike
