A beautiful Sunday - 22-11-2020

Post by mattwastell » Sun Nov 22, 2020 2:21 am

Hi all.
Woke up to a sunny morning - hot here in Brisbane - & set up my equipment (has not been out for quite some time). Needless to say I had a few set up challenges - very tight dovetail screws & flat batteries for the mount motor. The great wife made me breakfast, went up the shop to get batteries & beer; mmmmmm, I wonder what she has on her wish list!
I had a couple of hours of sun on my new bedroom deck, had a good look through the eyepiece (all in good working order) & snapped a few pics with my archaic DMK51 - disc image at 1/435 exp @ 50ish Gamma / fuzzy disc at 1/435 exp / 200ish Gamma.
Have a great week ahead all.
