At last


Recommended Posts

Hi all my previous 10 nights of imaging have not gone well. The first six I could not get the Lodestar to guide through the QSI, the problem was a 5m usb lead. In the last four sessions EQMOD would not do a star align so last night I changed the game controller for a wireless mouse and it worked, looks like the game controller didn’t like windows 7. With everything working I went to the bubble and took 36 x 300 second subs in Ha. Then I went to ngc 891 and did an LRBG 9-3-3-3 x 300 seconds ( just for a bit of practice). Both images taken with my home made 200mm 5.4 newt and are not cropped, with everything working this was the best nights imaging I have had in a long time and I never lost a single sub,,,,Paul.
