Description

First light for my TOA-130. The first night I only managed one 20min sub before fog rolled in, though the seeing was good.

The second night I managed 8 subs before fog. However the polar alignment was slightly off leading to some field rotation visible in the upper corners (revision A and B).

For revisions C and D, I replaced the 8 frames with bad polar alignment.
