Finally a clear night


After almost 3 months at home in "virus lockdown" the number of clear nights have sadly been few, so when the clouds parted I put out every imaging setup I own.

There is quite a bit of DIY here. The Losmandy running the big scope was my splurge (and that I got used pretty cheap). As long as there is no chance of rain the setups can run on their own. AC timers turn them off. They range from 1220mm to 55mm fl.

No autofocus or automated meridian flips, but if I catch targets as they rise over the water I can get 6+ hours of data (when its actually dark that long anyway) per setup.
