Never switched it off from last night. Shut the mount down and left the scope with the fans on to keep it cool all day and not let the primary mist up.

Imaging again now on M33, M78 and Bodes to follow later tonight :)

My telescope is sat in the conservatory right now. All being well I'll put it out to cool about 22:00 or so then look to start observing sometime later, maybe around midnight, just to give the neighbours time to turn off the lights and go to bed :)

Solid cloud almost all day :D Watching Race to Mars on discovery science & waiting for the Mrs to get back so I can go out for a takeaway.

But I've been out twice this week - nice, despite the high cloud :)

I've done that many times but had to give up on waiting last night. The temperature kept on becoming colder and colder,.. When it reached -39, I gave up! :)

Drastic problems require drastic solutions. I'm not good enought to fix what was wrong. After trying re-installations I ended up doing a system restore to last thursday and it's all fine.

I'm still out!

We're doing fine! I was away from the computer during the holiday season but am back now. I hope you are doing well yourself! By the way,... Happy belated New Year!

I'm just sitting here watching a dob on ebay that I'll probably never get, passing the time on SGL. Good times.
