M42 with the Ioptron Skytracker

THis is a "first light" shot done with the Ioptron Skytracker. A book sized tracking device that fits on your camera tripod. I shot this with a Canon 6D and the 100-400mm lens at 400mm and f7.1 (meant to do 5.6). 57 exposures at 1 minute length were collected and stacked in deep sky stacker. Processed with Photoshop, Nik and Lightroom.
