Been a very long time since I have attempted any astro imaging , thought I would get my feet wet with some star circles.
I am busy setting up a new observatory on a farm , as LP has made it practically impossible to image from home anymore.
The LP in the images below comes from the town of Uitenhage and the City Port Elizabeth that is situated in line about 100 - 120 Km distant.
Apart from that the rest of the sky is reasonably dark , I think I might be able to get some half decent imaging done from here.
