At 06:20 this morning, having spotted the opportunity (after three weeks of incessant cloud), I carried my (assembled) Evolution 8 + Starsense from my conservatory into my garden. I selected 'connect & align' on my tablet and proceeded to boot up my Laptop. By the time I had assembled my camera and cables, Starsense had completed alignment and plonked Jupiter smack in the centre of my EP. I grabbed a minute of video, and by the time the rising sun obliterated the view, I had it stacked, part processed, and my equipment back in doors. The time was 07:03, the entire process taking 43 minutes.  I had to be fast as I was being picked up at 07:15 to travel 150 miles to an away football match. That is the beauty of Starsense.
