First time in awhile

June 10, 2017

I finally had a clear(ish) night on a weekend to fire up the scope again.  All in all, most things worked alright, but there's still room for improvement with regard to a better autoguider and cable management for the USB devices.

I spent the night taking a few quick images of Jupiter, M106 and M5.  It's windy as hell (the observatory is creaking and shaking constantly), so I don't know if anything'll actually come out.  Either way, it's been really nice to be out again.

SQM 18.7 with the full moon, and 22 degrees at 1am.
