I recently got myself a Sky-watcher Star Adventurer Photography kit, and despite having purchased it some time ago I have only just got it out and started learning how to use it. Sadly my first try was a bit of a bust as I was only able to get one usable picture out of it due to poor polar alignment. In the southern hemisphere we have to align against the octan's however, in the area I was capturing the image the light pollution meant I could not find them :(. This meant that because I was off alignment, all of the tracking shots were not sharp and displayed some level of motion blurring. The image I did salvage was taken with the Nikon D610, Sigma 150mm Macro, 20 Seconds, f/2.8, ISO 1600. Image was edited in lightroom before being tweaked in Topaz Denoise and Topaz Sharpen.
