Welcome to my astronomy blog, I dedicate myself to the simplest form of amateur astronomy which requires only portable equipment. My current lifestyle keeps me away from dark skies, so I can only target on solar system targets.
I have two small refractors, two small binoculars, one small GOTO mount and another small equatorial mount, and a small H-alpha solar filter.

20140526 No tracking solar imaging
The Sun is still in a bad place from inside my room, and it is impossible to use my Mark-X for tracking.
1436 (GMT+8), at prime focus, no tracking and thus shifting and expand during stacking:-
1438 (GMT+8), with 2x barlows, no tracking and again shifting and expanding during stacking, the zip-zap line on the bottom is the artifact:-
I will try to keep on imaging even no tracking is possible.
