I Was Hoping For a Clear Night

One of the biggest frustrations with astrophotography is getting a sharp focus.   This becomes an especially hard thing when doing eyepiece projection with an eyepiece in the path to the camera.  This lets you get a lot more magnification than prime focus.  But my results have always been a little disappointing.

I see that my Pentax K20D has a feature called Live View where you get the image on the little pop-up screen instead of the always disappointing ground glass viewfinder.  It took a while to figure out to get to work, but now I am ready.

Tomorrow is supposed to be clear and in the 80s by nightfall.
