 Kah-Wai Lin saw an opportunity during last night's clear sky to test his new iOptron mount with his Sony A6 and Canon zoom lens. It looks like everything worked fine! I think the Pleiades (M45) image was taken at 300 or 400mm focal length using 30 second subs, while the North America Nebula (NGC7000) was taken at 150mm focal length using 40 minutes of 1 minute subs. Although he took a set of darks he said he didn't use them in post processing.

Excellent images Kah-Wai, especially considering these are your first try at "deep sky" imaging.

Thanks for sharing,

Keith
