Through the Looking Glass

Through the Looking Glass

Back in Abilene

Saturday night at CSAC was a bummer for astronomy and imaging, but what a light show from the North! A front blew through around midnight and had all of us watching weatherTAP on the computer. I checked the forecast for Abilene and it showed clear skies for the whole week! I put the Nomad Observatory back together Sunday afternoon and shot six hours of IC5068 in RGB with the IDAS LP-P2 filter.

 

The circuit board appeared loose in the control box of my EM-10 last night result in a faulty connection to the hand controller. An 8 pin DIN receptacle has fallen apart and needs to be replaced. I switched it out with the NJP for the rest of this week's imaging. Redundancy can be a good thing!
