Got to love the recovery possibilities. Last night looked like a reasonable chance from about midnight so I set up. A big band of cloud passed through around 11PM and both rigs parked themselves and retried every ten minutes or so until it cleared out, then both kept on going with unattended flips for both.

Thanks David. I think I've run out of excuses for avoiding processing now.

Having everything already set up makes a huge difference. You are far more likely to take a chance the weather will be ok or set up later in the evening when the skies clear. The programming is not difficult to get into if it interests you enough. Part of the appeal for me is making stuff.

Was that captured with the QSI 683 and the 10inch?

Cheers Geoff
Hi Geoff - that was the SN10 and QSI683. Good to catch up earlier today.

Hi Jack. I was going down the NINA path however there is an issue with the ASCOM driver for my camera that meant I couldn't use 2x2 binning for RGB with NINA and that was a show stopper for me. I saw on their Discord that someone else was asking for Native QSI driver compatibility however he didn't get much support from the devs.

The guider recovery is so important if you want to leave it unattended. Previously I've had many occasions where it loses the guide star, tries to recover and ends up in a different part of the sky. That's the main reason I would end up having to watch it.

It shot this with my sons C925 (My old scope and cam gifted to him) after the cloud band went through. I was in bed asleep when it started imaging this.
