I was dismayed to see how out-of-focus this image turned out to be, especially after I spent 90 minutes drift aligning the scope at oh-dark-thirty this morning. I used a Bahtinov mask on Arcturus to dial in the focus, but there must have been some mirror shift while slewing to M3.
Anyway, here's what I got this morning using the Orion G3 Starshoot. It's been a long, wet Seattle-area winter, so I was just happy to FINALLY get back out under the stars. Even if I only got a poor-to-mediocre photo.
Focusing tips and tricks at high magnification are always welcome!
