M20, m8, m16

I recently spent 3 nights at Wiruna under dark skies. Amongst other things I shot M20, M8 and M16. I probably went overboard and tried too many objects but was keen to try my new scope.

M20, The Triffid Nebula

You were having a good look around Paul!

Nothing wrong with that, later you might choose to spend time on one target.

10 out 10 for effort

That's very nice. One productive night. That refractor field looks well corrected. I tend to shoot as many targets as I can too when I get to the house. I don't get to dark skies that often.

Thanks Marc,

I am very happy with the Esprit. It appears flat to the edges. The TV85 was flat using the ASI1600 MC but couldnt cope with the 2600.

Thanks Peter,

I have decided to limit myself to just two targets at Wiruna next month. The problem will be choosing them.
