Re: Window Astrophotography 2019

I've managed to add a couple more hours of OIII and SII data on the Running Chicken, totalling 9.3 hours so far.

WTS: Baader Stronghold Tangent Assembly [sold]

It is very solidly built and should provide a flexture-free solution which will probably be quite useful for imaging. I've never used it an...
