Description

The first clear night after almost two months. It was very cold -11°C, no need for cooling the camera 😄 I was very excited to test my new dual setup with two 5" newtons. Now I can double the exposure time, especially in summer. I had a little trouble to get them parallel, but now it works. I'm very happy with the new "Multi Star Guiding" in PHD2, it's much better now.
