This is the first proper outing for the new 101EDII. Just a test run of 7 x 15 min subs on this quite dense area of Cygnus. Auto focusing worked really well and pulled in a HFD of 2.15 which is the lowest I’ve seen, it usually gets somewhere between 3 and 4. I’ve also added a S2 filter to the wheel, so will try and get Hα/O3/S2 on this over the next few clear nights (it could take a while!!)
