I had a nightmare last night everything went wrong that could have...ever had one of those nights?...

This is the one and only image i managed to get, and it is not that good.

Using my recently updated Toucam pro, flashed with the SPC900 firmware, and that was the only thing that worked. Kept losing connection between mount and PC, problem was a loose handset connection, which i think i have now fixed.

Struggled with focus as seeing was terrible, when finally got going looked up and great.... here come the clouds, so clicked capture for 90 seconds and this is what i got for 3 hours of trying.

What a great hobby this is....LOL

Don't I know it..had one night, everything worked great, except the exposures, lol, alignment on the nose, 3-star alignment w/out a hitch, guiding seemed ok, then wasn't..made it out of that night with maybe 2 or 3 images of M51, 10, 15, 20min..and they came in at 3:00am..no sleep that night, work next day, but thse three images @ those long exposure times were worth it; you gotta love this stuff to do it.
