After four month of inactivity, because of bad weather here,
I restarted my Lx200 which was sitting taskless in the cold Astrodom.
And it worked without a glitch!
It was only me who had to recap all things to get a decent image.

I used the IR pass filter to mitigate stray-light caused by the new installed Community LED Street lights.

Remark : NGC 3389 Mag 12.4
