First light with skywatcher mak 180 pro

finally managed to con the wife into letting me buy a long focal length scope for planets and hopefully some solar . More than impressed looking at the moon visually it was super clean. However my first couple of images were rubbish, I have take way better images with my phone through an eyepiece on my 12 inch dob.

I was rushed a my wife had other things planned for me , ( can't complain got 6 straight nights in just recently when there was no moon. )

Images are take with zwo 120 mini and zwo 224 MC . All at .005 of a sec . No processing has been done as you can tell

I can't wait to give Jupiter and Saturn a go .

I was just happy to actually find the moon. As I didn't even do a polar alignment.
whole new ball game with planet imaging. Hope in the next few months I will be able to post something half decent
