Three images from yesterday afternoon. All with the Nikon D80 (full spectrum IR) and the Nikkor 16-85mm.
First Light with the DWARF II. This all-in-one device is not as problem-free as it is often portrayed. Now and then the software goes on strike, but when it works, the little device positions itself quite accurately and then tracks the object in the sky quite precisely.

Yesterday evening it was clear – with a little fog on the ground – but the great activity was over. Nevertheless, it was at least enough for a little […]
