Tonight was a chilly one, but it was worth the improved conditions for imaging. This was a first light for my ZWO EFWmini and Celestron StarPointer Pro. The EFWmini is surprisingly quiet compared to other electronic filter wheels I have used. The StarPointer Pro also works great, but I recommend finding a mounting bracket for red dot finders if you have an SCT and need to remove it after every session.
