Description

I can't remember the last time we've done DSO imaging with the HyperStar! Unfortunately, the CGEM DX started making strange noises and is very erratic with the hand controller after we finished this imaging session, so it'll probably be out of order for a long while.

...and before you ask about the CCD Temp, we forgot to turn on CCD cooling.
