Re: Catch of the night; California Nebula

Did you use a polar alignment scope?

Yes. This is essential when using anything from 50mm or more at 1 minute or longer. But you can get lucky without!

I have experimented a bit with a laser night sky pointer for polar alignment. If I can get it mounted fairly accurately it seems to be a lot easier than a scope.
