I had several equipment problems spread over two nights at camp, one of which I only resolved just over an hour before dawn on the second night. The PA had somehow slipped causing me elongated stars, it was perfectly aligned with polemaster first night, but I think perhaps the tripod legs might not have been spread 100% and had possibly slipped. Never happened before.

I managed to retrieve the shorter RGB stars but only managed to get 1 hour 10 minutes luminance of 600secs on this so this is definitely a work in progress.

10 hours clear sky, almost 8 3/4 wasted!!!!
