  1. I tried out my Polemaster tonight before clouds rolled in and even though the instructions leave much to be desired, I was able to follow the steps and achieve alignment. I was concerned that the hazy and severely light polluted urban sky I live under would cause problems finding reference stars, but the camera software gave plenty of headroom for gain and exposure. It would be nice to see a better translated set of instructions and some dark frame subtraction added to later versions. Perhaps some auto precession compensation could be added as well? I'm hoping to actually run some imaging and obtain some PHD graphs if the dang clouds would just stay away long enough to do so! This appears to be a promising product!
  2. Absolutely amazing what you have done for us Lodestar users. Do you, or should I ask, would you accept donations?
