Frustrating is not the word. Tonight I've spent about 41/2 hours trying to get PHD2 working and no chance yet it all worked perfectly last night.  Just as I packed in last night I noticed an update for NINA so I installed it. Maybe that was the problem so tried APT and that was just the same.... PHD2 just seemed to loop around calibrating, stopping and repeating, messed with everything I could think of but no joy....

Just spent the last 2 hours capturing subs of Orion.

With the Bahtinov mask still on.



Do publish it. It would make a nice change from yet another Orion.  😀

Oh  yeah,  you're DEFINITELY the first.

As we say of  retractable-gear pilots, there are two kinds: Those who've made a gear-up landing, and those who will.

(When I first checked out in such a bird, the fanged instructor so rewired my brain that whenever I flew fixed-gear a/c thenceforth, I still ran the gear checklist, except that the response, instead of "down and locked", was a look out the window and "down and welded".)

Well.. Turned out I need not worry about the quality of the other pictures after I took mask off.. Seeing as I made the mistake of leaving the card on coffee table.. In reach of the puppy.. Sigh...

But more seriously, we have all done daft things before.

That's how you learn by doing daft things - like just last night I learnt to unplug the cables before taking my OTA off the mount...

And last year I learnt to put on the counter weight before the OTA and releasing the clutch...

Cricky, is there something in the air at the moment, all these issues and frustrations going on. We all must be the most tolerant, patient people to carry on this hobby! 😊
