First real test image with the Esprit


Recommended Posts

After a bit of a false start, I finally got a real first-light test image on 7th April, with my new Esprit :D - the false start was one of those annoying 1D 10 T  errors!!!

Anyway, 21 subs managed before the clouds stopped playtime. I think I need to re-shoot the calibration library - so as the clouds look like they're here for a few days, seems like an opportune time! And of course, I need to re-read Warren's Inside PI book. Again!

That's a result, Daz, especially for a first light - You've gotta be really pleased with that... I know I would be :)

(I bet your false start wasn't as basic as the the one you spotted me making all those years ago... )
