Webcam session February 2nd

I decided to have a go with the webcam and Startravel 80 from 1930 GMT to 2000 GMT when a dizzy spell ended the session. The main idea was to try using a focal reducer with a webcam to get more of the Pleiades. It didn’t work due to focus travel problems and I thought of a potential workround later.

The Pleiades looked superb through the eyepiece and I took several shots at various exposure settings and areas of the cluster.
