5 jan: After over a month of no clear sky it finally became a nice sky, for three hours anyway. After some problems I managed to gather 1 hour of data, always something. The new guider scope, TS-Optics 80 mm guide scope gives round sharp stars. Another brick in the wall.

3 feb: Januari passed and the weather refused to give any more time, 3 hours of clear sky. December gave 0 hours.

3 April: Februari gave 2 me two good pics.
March and first day of April has given me 7 days to take pictures. But the ever present haze is a problem, 4 of the nights work did not give any good result 2 of them was directly to the bin. However I managed to get a good picture on M101 and one on M81-82 so I am happy with the results after all.

A picture is born

In spring 2016 I picked up an old interest in astronomy and amongst all the ability to take amateur pictures of our fantastic universe

The learning curve is steep and can be very demanding when softwares, hardwares and weather giving unwanted problems.

My challenge is to make as much as possible on the facts that I am facing with my equipment and the light pollution and the allmost constant haze here. When I gets a somewhat nice result I am proud that I actullay got that result with my given terms.
