After fighting computers, software and who knows what for over two years now in the observatory, Murphy seems to have been evicted.  I am starting to get guided images again!

Collected a set of LRGB data for M33 last night, along with this HA data of a section of the California Nebula.  Does it ever feel good to have the observatory working again.  In the time since I last collected successful data, the OS has changed, and major version revisions on all of the software that I use have occurred along with new versions of all the drivers as well.

Image page:

15x10 minute of HA data calibrated in Maxim and processed in PhotoShop.

Enjoy (I know I am)


PS. It was great to finally meet the AP crew as AstroCATs back in the Spring.
