I lost an hour and 45-minutes of good imaging time setting up the mini-WASP array last night. Sometimes it decides it is going to fight me every inch of the way for absolutely no good reason. Finally managed to get 4 x 30-minute subs on all 3 cameras for a total imaging time of 6 hours (which for 2 actual imaging hours is a good return)
. I actually got 5 subs per camera but as I went in to the observatory to shut down at 1:30 a.m. like a clumsy idiot I bumped the mount and lost the last sub
It's a bit painful to lose a half hour sub that way. Anyway - here's the result with my abysmal processing - I am sure Noel will turn out something that bears very little resemblance to my effort grin01 grin01 PacMan and Schedar with the mini-WASP array
