Dear all,

after a long summer, without time and always bed weather i was out to make some pictures with the Astrotrac Mount.
The conditions where perfect, so i was able to make some pictures from the milky way.

A good example why a telescope is not needed to image the night sky.

thx :-)
i'm just on the beginning.
But this night was briliant.
Next i try to mount a Skywatcher ED80/500 on the Astrotrac.
If i can make a similar polarus alignment i hop i can make a shot from the Andromeda Galaxy.
But now the weather is bad
