First and Last? Astro from 2008

Got the telescope out yesterday and proceeded to spend ages trying to setup. Eventually got bored of Polar Alignment and just stuck a camera on top and tried shooting Orion.

a) still haven't got the hang of Polar alignment - need practice
b) top / DEC motor on AP900GTO is not functioning - need to figure out why
c) Loads of Skyglow (even pointing away from London) - need to remember how to EASILY get rid of it in post-processing

 You wouldn't believe the backlog of photos I have to blog.... this one is from the Harvest Fayre at RHS Wisely.

Some updates also to The Pinnell Family blog - take a look!
