KEH had a Rokinon 85/1.4 in X mount available the other day, so I bought one to go with my shiny new X-T20.  Someone over at CN had asked to see a shot of an H-alpha rich target, so I figured two birds with one stone time, and pointed the X-T20 and Rokinon at Sadr, using my Sky Tracker Pro and the camera's internal intervalometer.  Pretty happy with the performance of all components:

52x30s, f2.8, ISO 800

So the reason I cut that target short is that while I was doing that, the air really cleared up and we had reasonably good seeing, so I got out my AVX and AT72ED to get some more data on the Iris Nebula.  I got the mount aligned, and tracking looked great.  Guiding was reporting a total error of 1.9" RMS, which isn't too bad for my AVX.  I set up the intervalometer to get 24 five minute subs and went to bed.  Behold:

At least it's in focus.

I've got two hours worth of very nice pictures of my Bahtinov mask.
