Note to self, check weather then put on pajamas, otherwise sky clears and standing outdoors in pajamas and flip flop freezing. However as been practicing inside setup much faster/easier. So 22 x 60 seconds @f3.5 ISO 800. Threw away 15 subs as aircraft, clouds and such. Focus maybe a touch off. Next try more subs and 90 seconds.

-polar alignment worked
-image plate solved
-look ok despite some high cloud and bright sky
-dark and flats worked to remove artifacts

Pretty pleased really and kind of cool can see double cluster.
