ASI290MM first guiding job

I guess the picture below says it all !! RMS values of 0.30″ and 0.26″. The mount was setup in the garden that same night, using PoleMaster to align (one 7-minute session). The PHD2 Guidelog mentions a pole error of 0,5′ I guess that is 30″. Not bad for spending 7 minutes on aligning. Works like a charm.

This is no doubt rather good guiding. I’m happy with this result: a good combination of the ASI290MM smaller pixels and the old Soligor “free” 400mm F 6.3 DSLR telelens (I got it as a gift from a neighbour who found it on a flee market).

Comet Wirtanen on December 10th

Comet Wirtanen 46/p on the evening of December 10th, 2018. Image with a 120mm Esprit refractor F5, Nikon D750 ISO800 11x120s

The comet was traced with CdC and PHD2. 

Very easily seen in 10×50 binoculars, and also naked eye visible with adverted vision. 
Another sequence of shots taken that same night. This time 30 times 60 seconds at 1600 ISO.  Stacked in DSS on the comet.
