Orion with the Celestron C-5 spotting scope
7

It was very windy last night, and there seemed to be some light high cloud, but I had been wanting to get an Orion image with the 1250 mm FL C-5. Looking at the subs afterwards, I could see the sky lighten as the session went on, but I guess Orion is bright enough that it didn't matter.

120x 30 sec and 40x 10 sec, f/10:

Orion is a bit too large for the C-5 - the outer edges are dimmed by vignetting.
