it must be very difficult to adjust your angle, blindly, to position the Nebula in your composition.

From one of your photos, you seem to have a very interesting (maybe unconventional) set-up to allow you make very fine actuation. Could you please share with us?

I have already assumed that your tracker was not part of the above actuation once it had been calibrated.


It’s a Celestron setup. I just did take off the telescope. It’s not automatic and a little outdated in comparison with newer trackers. Combining this with the difficulty of alignment to the South Pole..  the result was not so precise
