About this observation

Moon and Jupiter (compilation)
Observing location
Fenland, Cambridgeshire
Canon Eos 6D + 500mm f6.3 mirror lens
Celestron CPC1100 + f6.3 corrector, Eos 6D and IR block filter
Both at ISO400, mirror lens 1/80s, CPC1100 1/4s

I bought the Samyang mirror lens to tide me over whilst I refurbished and upgraded my observatory and CPC110. Optically it's a bit 'soft' but clearly isn't well collimated (a common problem with these lenses apparently). There's no obvious way to fix this (though there is a plastic cover on the corrector plate that I'm tempted to lever off...). It has produced some images which should be useable for photometry - watch this space!
