Well its been far too long but the weather and further equipment issues have meant very little in the way of updates until now.
First I would like to welcome everyone to the new dedicated website.
It became clear to me after speaking to various people that this site deserved its own space, this has been an ongoing plan for a few weeks that has only just managed to get put into action. Over the coming weeks there may well be a few changes but the core is now up and running again.
The last few weeks have been very hit an miss in regards to weather but also in regards to my guiding. I have been experiencing some very strange guide graphs and could not figure out what was going on. After getting a polemaster (more on this later) I should have been getting better guide graphs compared to before with my less than optimal alignment. Over the space of a few evenings thing went further and further down hill. After a lot of investigation and stripping the mount down I ended up sending it off to be repaired and hypertuned by Darkframe optics. All being well I should have the mount back over the next week or so ready to image with the new camera and modified scope (more updates to follow).
I will be posting more about the polemaster, new camera and the modifications over the coming days along with a few images I did manage to acquire before sending it off.
