My Latest Astrophotography Setup SkyWatcher Pro 80mm Refractor

I picked up this Sky-Watcher PRO 80 mm f/7.5 ED APO used and it’s my first wide field view setup for astrophotography. I have gotten a bit better with everything but I have a long way to go to get my photos looking better. It’s a fun process so I am not going to quit now lol

Nice setup. You’re gonna love that bahtinov mask. Lets you nail focus in 10 seconds and lock the focuser. I have that asi1600 too. If you’re using their rgb and narrowband filter set, I am pretty sure they are parfocal so refocusing between filters shouldn’t be necessary. The skywatcher field flattened/focal reducer is PRICEY! Even after spending the money on it I’m not sure the field is completely flat. Cheers!

Great images. One thing at 1:27 MM in ASI1600MM stands for Monochrome not Millimeter
