I know, not very exciting.  Shoot, I had to use https://nova.astrometry.net/ to find a star to image solve to in PI.  Not sure I am even going to post this to astrobin.

 

This was a filler target while I waited for IC 1396 to come over the horizon.

Good seeing, hardly any smoke.  Amazing how good polar alignment sticks whhen you tighten down the knobs.  Good guiding other than a few spikes.

 

2.5 hours at 120s.  Advanced Gt, modified t3i, and canon 300mm lens(see signiture.

Is this like one of those Magic Eye puzzles you have to stare at to see it?  Because I could never do those.

LOL, at least it was an easy target.  Didn't have to spend a lot of time on it.

 

I do have to admit though matt, it was a pleasure last night having any problems.  No power glitches, no guiding glitches, no PA glitches.  Sky was clear and hardly any smoke.  It was like dang, i can go to bed and let it run.

Nice.  smile.gif

 

Just want to point out your stars are trailed fairly badly though so you might want to track that down.

lol, that's what I was thinking.  That name did not work in imagesolver in PI.  I had to find a star id to imagesolve that.  Like I said, it was a filler target.
