Description

We finally had a few clear night in a row where I live late last week. I went ahead and took advantage of them. All it did was cement my intention to go to a dedicated mono astro camera and filters because it is much harder to process and it seems to have less signal than a mono camera. Still, uploading it for the plate solve. Ohh, and I seem to have a little bit of tilt in my focuser. Sad times.
