21 hours on this target.

Had a windy night last night, jetstream overhead plus full moon.. all of this while the rig is on a deck (composite). Didn't even expect any images to come out right, but to my surprise tracking was better than usual at <1 error and super clear shots with no evidence of the mount every moving one bit. I've had calm nights with much more issues.

Ain't that the way it goes.  Nice capture.

Cool image. How many nights for 21 hours? I guess they weren't all windy?
