Description

This is my first try with my remastrered setup. I added a motorfocus and astroberry to control my gear. Unfortunately astroberry crashed, so I was only able to acquire 9 Images. On the whole it worked quite well, the autofocus is outranging and phd2 did a good job as usual. I will give it another try to find out if the crash was a one time happaning or if the system is unstable.

I know, that M44 is a little too big for this setup but it should just be a first use of the modifiied gear and to gather some experience with it.
