Long Glass

Well - finally got all the stuff I needed to test the 6" refractor's suitability to astrophotgraphy. I ran a couple of preliminary tests on M3 last night - five ten minute long exposures at 1370mm using a newly acquired Lodestar autoguider. Results were extremely promising. Stay tuned.

Could be awhile Melinda - weather is NOT cooperating this weekend. Sigh.

2 days of record high temps...that pool looks more rewarding!
