Description

Note to self, charge camera battery before going outside and setting all up! Pfffffttttt! Five images x 30 seconds and camera battery dead! So 5 x 30 seconds @f3.5 ISO 800. But I consider this a huge success as:

-polar alignment worked
-image plate solved
-look ok despite moon and sky very hazy and bright
-dark and flats worked to remove artifacts

To experienced imagers that this is look pretty mediocre is obvious I think but is huge step for me to be able take own images. Really couldn't be more pleased.
