Vega is a star that I use as an alignment star for my mount , it is very clear even with small telescopes it is visible . It is 25,04 lj away and it can be seen in livemode view of a dslr camera as well .
You can also use your bahtinov mask to get the right focus .
I made a picture of VEGA with my canon dslr 450D with a 70/420mm telescope .My mount is a a skywatcher EQM35-Pro. I did not really take the time to edit this photo and it is a single picture
