First Light Esprit 120


Recommended Posts

Finally managed to get a few hours in, and set up my Esprit 120. This setup is only temporary, I have no autofocuser on the scope, or flattener, both are on the way. I needed the extension tube to reach focus on my ASI 1600, whether I will need when my flattener arrives, only time will tell. I managed to achieve a respectable focus of HFR 2.2 in Sharpcap, just by eye. Once in focus everything run smoothly, I wasn't expecting any great image, but I'm happy with what I got, before condensation ruined the evening, (waiting for a dewstrap also).

I managed just over an hour on the Wizard nebula in Ha. The full moon gave me no other option.
