Pushing the limits! #iEXOS-100

Chris Tardif

Well...I place my order for a new 102mm should be here next week.  My NA nebula sequence just started...I'm on 1 of 104...guided...180 seconds each.

Time for bed.


Canon 400mm lens (soon to be a real scope)
Canon T3i
ZWO 30mm guide scope + Altair Astro GPCAM 130.
Intel NUC PC to rule it all and too much software to list.

It was a good much easier to aim with this figured out and the connection back to Stellarium…..simply awesome....I was still off by a couple hundred million miles it was close enough for now.
