i couldnt sleep because i was nervous to try my new mount. didn't do Astrophotography for nearly 4years trough a telescope now. between 1-2 Am ( UTC) it was clear a bit not as much as promised by predictions.

so i went out , set-up the scope. had to rediscover things but did go better as planned. to be hones i din't think to get a decent picture on teh first night.

hope you like it
