Olympus Zuiko 24mm f2 lens at f4, PixCel 237. Piggybacked atop a Celestron Fastar 8 for 480 seconds (four 120 second exposures Track and Accumulate). Post processed with CCDOPS v4.0, log scaled and sharpened. This image represents my first attempt at CCD imaging using the PixCel camera lens adapter. Don't let the wide field fool you. It is still quite a challenge to center an object even with a wide angle lens! But, tracking is much less of a problem. Focusing the lens is certainly more difficult as there is little fine control.
