No tracking, no telescope! This is taken with a regular DSLR + tripod with a cheap wide angle lens. I wanted to see how far I could push a stack of 11 x 20s exposures. There is some coma distortion on the edges and I’ve cropped in a bit. f3.2 / ISO 3200 / Canon 70D. Stacked in Nebulosity 4.

Stupid weather forecast said it would be cloudy all night and it’s actually perfect conditions. I should’ve setup the telescope hours ago but it was fun to try this anyway to push the boundaries of regular DSLR astrophotography a little!
