Live action - Trick to avoid elongated stars doing EAA / Astrophotography with a dobsonian telescope

Post by Tiago Ferreira »

Live EAA observing session where i show a good and simple trick using Sharpcap FWHM to override the star trails / elongated stars in the image. This is with my 12" f/5 dobsonian telescope on an equatorial platform but can be used with other set up.
