Description

More testing of the new setup. The whole setup is still in transition and testing is ongoing trying to improve tracking, stars, automation, etc... But, it is almost there! I love seeing these targets from afar. Definitely gives the sense of hanging in space. This is a 3 panel mosaic with 5 hours per channel and part of a larger mosaic project I hope to be able to finish over this spring. Fingers crossed since I've only been able to get roughly 2 hours a night right now.
