Well – it’s been a very long wait for a clear sky – but tonight in Brockenhurst I’ve struck lucky with the weather.  Absolutely freezing outside, but crystal clear dark (Moonless) sky outside and managed to get started imaging at 5:45 p.m. – very happy 🙂  I’m using “the Sky 6” to point the C11 and it seems to work pretty well.  Object for tonight – a compact ball of stars lying very close to the Heart nebula labelled IC1831.  10-minute subs at f#3.5 and I’ll keep going until the object moves out of view or it clouds/fogs over.  It’s been a long wait, but at least it’s been a fine night to kick off again with the imaging.
