Description

Having some serious troubles with the newt, light is leaking/reflecting some how and flats keep failing like this http://koti.kapsi.fi/~kharan/astro/flat_problem.jpg . Thought the light was leaking in through a rip in a M54 adapter, but still seems to happen. Had to use copious amounts of Photoshop to get rid of uncalibrated dust motes.
