Description

This is another one of the three shots I got last night while testing my mount out. I actually spent more time on this one than anything else... And then the clouds rolled in!

Revision B has flat and bias frames applied (the original does not). I am working on removing the banding from the images... I've been told removing the 110AC Power converter and sticking to batteries would help...

Revision C is the same configuration as Revision B, but with 3X Dither enabled in DSS.
