A quick outing last night to catch PANSTARRS through a gap in the clouds.
300mm from a fixed tripod will produce short star trails very quickly, so I used the EQ3-2 mount, RA driven. It only needs a vague polar alignment for this – as the latitude is already set, I just place the tripod with the RA axis pointing roughly to where I already know is North. That’s it. No sighting, no levelling, no adjustment. Good enough for a few seconds at 300mm.
