This is the first time I imaged Abell 21. Finally I could finish the OIII images.
This last session was again a frustrating job. Since I have the new laptop with win 10, often happens that the laptop loses connection to the mount. Than I have to swich off everything and must restart the laptop. With my old win 7 laptop I had never any problem.
Win 10 sucks !!
