Sky Astrophotography - Guided
Just a reminder that much of my D70 sky astrophotography is now displayed on my Oracle Observatory reports.
During my 28-29 December 2005 trip to Oracle Observatory I did some more piggyback guided astrophotography with the D70. The D70 with a Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED lens was mounted on my LXD55-8"SC using a Meade Piggyback Bracket, model #07394, $39, purchased from OPT. The zoom lens was set for 200mm.
