Well it took a while but finally a reasonably clear sky. I set up the iOptron sky tracker as best I could and took some shots with 300 X1.4. ISO 640 F9 30 sec. Being totally new to this I don't have a clue from any perspective. I don't know my stars or anything!
Is there anything to be gleaned from this sample shot. I have a timer/remote release on order so I'm guessing that pressing the shutter has affected the shot?? Any suggestions anyone?
I know this little unit is not made for the 300 II but with a smooth gimble and care things were pretty stable. A little tricky to get Polaris right but I'm guessing I did based on minimal trails, or is 30 sec too low to show that??
