You know you are having a good night at Kelling Heath in September when you start imaging Orion! This was my first outing with the Samyang 135mm f2 lens, I used it wide open on a cropped DSLR sensor. I learnt a few things and have since 3D printed a focus lock and Bahtinov mask to really home in on the focus.
