Short night

Just had a short night outside tonight. I started a 3 hr imaging run of the Leo Triplet, mainly to see how CCD Autopilot handled the meridian flip. Everything went perfectly... It stopped paused the session before the flip was due, and right on time flipped over to the other side of the mount. After plate solving, the imaging session resumed. The only thing I noticed is that went near the meridian, Focus Max will still pick a star on the other side of the meridian. 

I captured some 15min frames of the triplet to add to my existing project, but could only shoot until 12:30 as clouds rolled in.
