First light / first picture!


Recommended Posts


Got my 150p and my HEQ5 today.

Managed to get a brief gap in the clouds and did the most noobie ghetto polar alignment ever.

Had a good look about and then left it for a few mins to see if the stars shifted. All looked good so I stuck the camera on to see what happened...

Pretty amazed to be honest! Was expecting trails all over the place, with my dodgy alignment, the howling wind, and being too excited to use mirror lockup... and it's even a dark night for here either!

4 x 30 seconds - somwhere in cassiopeia
