Description

One more time tried to push the Star Adventurer to its limits with Evostar 72ED, a6000. I really start to love my RasPi with Stellarmate OS and Ekos. The learning curve was steep again and I need to get some more energy out in the field 😉! But tried (RA) dithering what worked out fairly well and thus could pull out a bit more of the data than before when I have had massive problems with fixed pattern noise. Conditions were a suboptimal as the ≈70% illuminated waxing gibbous was already a huge light polluter in the sky 😜 far from being perfect but happy for now.
