Snapping The Stars

Thought it might be interesting too take a picture of the gear doing it's thing... William Optics GT81 with ZWO 183MM (bottom-red) on Losmandy GM8 (counterweight to the left) and laptop with it's green coat on (Minus 5 degrees ). Dew heater on main scope and guide scope, all pointing at the California Nebula.


Nice to see the Pleiades above the kit..


Pleased with this photo, NOT pleased with the main gear, all sorts of guiding problems, I'm wondering of maybe I had a cable snagging, it would guide well for a while and then go crazy. Or -perish the thought, cables were becoming cold and inflexible..
