Not happy with this one. I am currently tracking down my guiding problems. It seems that the connection between the main tube and the autoguider is a little bit unstable, resulting in a drift. The result is a blurry image. I ordererd another clamp to solve this problem. I will try to improve the image, but i am not sure if there is a lot to improve. Seeing was also bad, by the way.

It's not getting better than this 2nd version. I'll leave it be. The images are too blurry.
