HADS star V417 Bootes. The large gap in readings was due to a technical error. i.e. I hadn't realised that the star was going to get so high in the sky and so the scope was gradually being covered by the dome roof. I interpreted the gradual fading of the stars as cloud but when I went out to shut down realised it was still perfectly clear. When I moved the dome back all was then fine so I started again - Duh !!!V417Boo-plotApr2020.jpeg.d1f45ce275badc87004b9938295533cc.jpeg

We live and learn.

Been there, done that.

Several times.

Not as bad as when I lost signal during a run due to snow accumulating on the corrector plate.

Nice data apart from that, Dave.
