The beginning of a labour of love I hope, as I've collected 2hrs 40min for each panel. I am also collaborating with an astro buddy, with RGB collected on a WO Star71, as an experiment toward a combined HaRGB. It may not work but we plan to learn and have some fun along the way. Gnomus has been collecting RGb when weather permits and we hope to be able to fully share data soon and have an HaRGB image by the end of July.

I'm loving my new mount and beginning to relax into my new workflow. My most recent pointing model, improved through practise, now has RMS of 3.9", and I'm imaging at 3.47"/px. I've dropped auto-centring with a plate solve as the mount places my frame within a few pixels after a basic slew.

Rev B: a little more data.
