Great Globular Cluster in Hercules - "first light" for the Evoguide 50ED
5

Good Afternoon!
Changed my old 9/50mm original finderscope that came with my Newtonian reflector for the Skywatcher Evoguide 50ED as my new guidingscope. 242mm with a helical focuser instead of the 180mm traditional finderscope now for my MGEN-3 guiding camera.

After installing and focusing on Arcturus I've changed to M13 for a "deeper", better focus for the finderscope and started a series of exposures to check how it works - to keep things simple I've stayed with M13:
M13 - great globular cluster in Hercules

And of course - here a crop of the center:
