First prime focus image

Postby andyuk71 » Thu Aug 13, 2020 10:36 pm

Hey there. Recently re-kickstarted my astronomy hobby - it's been a few years since I was last here - nice to be back.
With the help and encouragement of my friend galileo, I've upgraded my gear and the other night, with a borrowed Canon 550D, managed my first prime focus image. Anyway, there's no coma correction, and it's just a shot of Vega, but it was quite thrilling to see the image on the camera LCD. There's no post processing and it's just a single frame. Here's the Flikr link :-)

Hopefully, more images to follow.
