Playing with my ETX LS6 5/24/2024

Post by rigel123 »

I bought the ETX LS6 when it first came out to use for DSO imaging. I was a real newby at the time and didn't know about field rotation, Alt/Az versus EQ mounts, etc. I just knew it could find objects in the night sky! Finally figured out what I really needed to do but have always loved this scope and the optics that it came with. So with some clearing skies, and albeit, hazy conditions I set it up with the Baader Film and took a 4 panel mosaic with the Saturn-M SQR and a close up of AR's 3685 and 86 with the ASI174MM. Not too bad considering the conditions. Looks like a nice one coming around the limb on the NE side!
