Attached is a small version of the best I could do this morning
using remote controlled scope at my observatory.
I really wanted to get the thing at the exact time of eclipse and
had everything set up to take series of 1 second images. This
is one of them. I plan to post a larger image on my
Unfortunately, the FocusMax system decided to refocus
at the critical times! It was set to do it every hour but
I thought the refocus start time would be in sync with
my "take an image time." Looks like it was in sync with
something else so it ran exactly when I didn't want it
to! And the two events were about one hour apart!
Next time I'll get it right but I don't think I will live long
enough to do that... :-)
Anyway, for what its worth...
