Through the FOV and out the end. I actually got the giggles imaging what this must look like should a neighbor be spying on me.

Anyway, in the end, I have over 5,000 of the most beautiful empty black frames. LOL.

You're a better man than I am.
I can relate to that! I've felt the wind in my hair and the bugs in my teeth just watching it pass in the 20x80's (let alone through a scope!).

It's a totally different type of imaging... time pressured!

Keep it up! Those 5000 black frames make 1 capture all the more precious! (and fun!)
