Bright Moon

Astrobase North West

Its too bright to image nebulae tonight so I just worked on getting sharp focus in my refractor and finderscope. Took a few shots of the Moon just to check focus was good. Canon 60Da at 100ISO attached to 480mm f6 scope.  Exposure =1/640 sec

Once Id done that, I tried to do some autoguiding through the finderscope – Im not sure that my lodestar was talking to the mount. Will have to explore further.
