My second time out with the new small triplet, and my first successful autoguide. I managed 3-minute exposures, which is pretty exciting when your previous best was 45 seconds!
I was hampered by clouds, and so I only had time to take 12 subs, of which 10 were useful. I'm not happy with the background noise, which I think will improve quite a bit when I acquire more lights. I will try for 5-minute exposures next time.
Hope you enjoy.
