Hi,

I've been working all summer on my ROR observatory and warm room all summer and, while there's more work to do, it's finally working. What a treat to press a button, light a heater in the warm room, and have a scope that is polar and star aligned and ready to go. My efforts are paying off. I posted a few images that I got last night using a 10" Meade SCT with a f/6.3 reducer, an Atik Infinity monochrome camera.  I used GIMP a bit-the moon was bright. Again I very much enjoyed myself last night and am looking for many more.

Thanks

Dick

A ROR sure makes life easier, I only use mine for visual. Nice photos.

Congratulations Dick!

 

You'll do more observing now than you ever did before. 

 

Enjoy!

That's what I'm hoping for.

Thanks
