Quote This turned out to be the best picture from a series from this night at Ekerö. It was our first time testing out the AstroTrac, which turned out to work flawlessly! Given the short focal length it was sufficient to make a rough polar alignment. The next time we will use the astrotrac we will use it together with a telescope, and then we will make a drift alignment. Quote
