So what's the excuse for such a grubby image then? Half the sky (towards the East) was clear at 6:00 p.m. but half the sky running north to south and covering the whole of the West was black and overcast. M82 was in the clear bit :D :D Fired up the Hyperstar, did the 2 star align, autofocused on the second star and slewed to M82 - all going well so far. Took a single 30-second sub to check the framing (that's the image above) - great - M82 is dead centre. Now just need to get a guide star, get autoguiding, and get a load of subs. Autoguide setup playing up - yep, completely clouded out in those 10-15 minutes :evil: :evil: :evil: So all I got was this 30-second setting up sub. But at least you can see the damn thing :roll: :roll:
