Possible to submit moderate widefield views for AP Messiers?


Post by Kanadalainen » Wed Oct 02, 2019 1:38 am

I mean, I'm not going to use my 10mm-derived skyscapes :lol: ...but I could use the practice with my 135mm prime lens, and have an bargain basement Sigma 300 mm zoom that I might put to work.

For example, the attached image has ~ 4 Messiers (M25, M28, M22, and M24) - a real basket load - in the field of view... would TSS mods be OK with this level of Tomfoolery? :). :think:

Thanks - I'll see myself out.
