QUARK Hydrogen Alpha Eyepiece
Observing location

A sunny afternoon with only intermittent cloud, and a prompt from the president, I set up my QUARK and had a go at observing and imaging (with a DSLR) on my ED80. The impromptu set up meant the mount was very poorly polar aligned. The relatively long focal length of the ED80 gives a small field of view with the DSLR attached. Pretty awful results, so I won't be sharing those. Cloud and frustration kicked in; there's always another day.
