Description

Cheated by clouds again !!

Yesterday forecasts were saying three hours clear sky in early evening so left rig out from yesterday and got home as fast as could from work

In the end only got 25 minutes before overcast set in

But I like to keep a diary of events so posting for that purpose - another outing for my redcat 51

Another go at star reduction techniques as well

Another reload following the great astrobin data disaster of 16/02/2020
