Sky watcher Star Adventurer Mount

Back  to using Samyang lens as 500 mm Star sky Tewlescope on Super Polaris Mount  on previous evening was just too  cumbersome.  Also  the f1.4   lens made it possible to view the Comet on  the live  view  screen . With the F5.5 Telescope  I was  just  shooting in the  Dark  so to speak.  Camera  set to  Auto white  which  gave a very nasty brown   colour cast which I have  endeavoured to remove in the Sony  Play memories Home programme that  came  with the Camera. .  Starting to suffer  from Comet Exhaustion.  Averaging  four  hours  sleep  a night at present
