This is project didn't met the target. I have focused, but when started guiding had problems with cables. The temperature dropped very fast and when started imaging didn't saw that focus is changed. Almost an hour later decided to check the focus and saw that it was far away :( Added 3 more subs just to see how better it could be... Frustrated I abandoned the target and went for other object.
