10 days at customs ….whatever, super psyched! 

Clear skies to boot. Have to use regular CLS until I get an appropriate filter so who knows what the images will look like. Oh yea, plus ANOTHER learning curve. Game on.

Going to try first light with it on the bubble nebula tonight since it's right above my patio. Curious to see if there's an improvement over my earlier stock camera version. Will post tomorrow for feedback.

My posted ngc 7000 from yesterday is probably the last stock camera image from me until I can figure out a way to piggy back it for widefield to my 80mm. 

Apologies for a non-contributing post but four more hours until dark skies and I'm bouncing off the walls. Funny how the littlest things....

I don't get it. Same camera as stock, byos connects then disconnects, camera shut down. Put old camera on and it works. RATS!!!

Remove the SD card, try the other drivers when BYEOS asks, check battery, switch usb cord and ports.
