A bit of trailing can be seen in the stars, so the image is certainly not as sharp as it could be. Not bad for an unguided star tracker, but I feel it’s definitely possible push the setup further and get a sharper result.
This version is a big step up in detail from last year’s attempt with the 100-400 lens. Although I have to admit I prefer the pop and colour of the old attempt (which didn’t use a narrowband filter) verses the muted tones of this version.
