Description

Impressive seeing and good transparency. This was the first night with my new laptop, a Dell Precision 7540. The storage in my late-2013 MacBook Pro was becoming too restrictive for planetary imaging with the C14. Previously, I would disconnect the USB hub with the accessories and delay imaging Saturn for 15 to 20 minutes to transfer Jupiter recordings to an external drive. One of my strategies to alleviate the delay was to set the filter wheel to the methane band filter and disconnect everything afterwards, but having much more storage makes this process a thing of the past. Having 3 slots for SSDs and 4 for RAM gives me plenty of room to upgrade if needed.
