My time with my telescope seems to follow a pretty consistent trend of frustration and disappointment. Every time I look forward to using it, things don't go right. Everything went wrong tonight.. the Maxim won't see the SBIG CCD anymore. Focusmax won't plot a Vcurve. It took forever to get the focuser to even connect. I can't even image Mars as it just turns into a big blob.
I guess it's time to pack in even trying to image until I at least have a camera that will connect to Maxim, as without being able to use Maxim, everything will just be an exercise in frustration.
