Spent the night out in the observatory. I seem to have about rectified my field flattener problems with using the new Orion FF, and a slightly larger spacer between the filter wheel and the FF. What I did discover is that when checking field curvature and such with CCD Inspector, images got progressively worse as the evening went on, because refocusing was required. Once I refocused, things looked much, much better.
Beautiful night.. mild, clear, still, and just the sound of the coyotes in the distance.
After taking some test images, I focused on M106, trying to accumulate some good LRGB+HA images.
While imaging I played around with CCD Autopilot. It looks quite powerful and worth using, but I'll have to experiment more to see how well it will work for my purposes.
