Revision as of 11:30, 31 July 2018

I used the ZWO AS103MC connected to the Meade ETX90EC. The images were captured with SharpCap.

I noticed that the "seeing" conditions were poor probably due to the heat of the day and that I was setup on the front driveway but still learning. I also had a lot of issues keeping the targets in the preview window. I wasn't using any tracking so makes since. Lastly, I needed to learn how to post process the images since I captured them in the RAW8 format. You can read my blog post about the July 26, 2017 observing session.
