Description

This is very first astro image taken with APT using Nikon camera during the tests of the beta 3.37 under the stars.

The sky was far from good, but gave some time with thin clouds and some holes.

The test went great - no hanging, imaging, dithering, PointCraft and GoTo++ working fine!

There are few more things to finish for a full version :)
