a demo with skybender

Post by highfnum » Fri May 01, 2015 4:49 pm

I normally use skybender with omega Ha filter in mode similar to thousand oaks prom viewer
however dynamic range is so huge that my camera just don't do well in capture (visually its great)

so
I came up with an analogy of using same filter as a "poor mans double stack" with lunt 60

I set lunt tilt once and then just used skybender to tilt omega filter only

here is pic of set up with camera
