Struggled today with the imaging. Late start ended up with terrible
seeing. Also had difficulty getting the double stack on band. I guess
it's been too long since I last observed.

That's a nice image Dan, so i guess that with a little practice, you'll get back to getting the DS back to band.

Cheers
Terry

Good result given conditions. it does take practice with the DS being on band, I had the same issue at the weekend.

Nice image, Dan. I always feel well out of practice during our winter because of the long spells without any quality imaging time. It takes a few sessions to get back on track in spring.

Well done Dan, spring is coming and the practice will come, you will soon get back into the swing. I usually have difficulty with the Solarscope in February when I start again, last year I thought it was broken but it wasn't, it was just me :)
