Very clear night, and a quick M13

M13-LRGB-2010-05-17I finished the mount and scope tuning, re-did the PEC training, and feel generally ready to start trying the new configuration. I took a quick image of M13 to test. It wasn’t supposed to be a quick image, but I almost immediately ran into a guiding problem, so only got about 25 minutes of data. The problem was just my very limited horizon – my guide star drifted behind an obstacle. I still have to get used to planning where the clear path is for objects I’m trying to image.

It’s supposed to be clear again tonight, so I hope to have a chance for another go.
