Standard

The crudest kind of piggyback. The main thing is to prevent it falling off with a loud smash when you accidentally knock it in the dark.

piggybackOnce attached, its alignment is a bit vague, but it does thus track with the telescope.  After potching about last night, pleased to find no star smears on a 15 second exposure.  But unfortunately my little Canon won’t do a real long exposure.

Cassiopeia and PerseusNo chance to practice today, however; total overcast.
