        Thanks Mark, I tried to make sure I included the very bright 'star' to the bottom right, which I believe is actually Jupiter?

          ... a great time of year for setting the sky in context with a well-chosen foreground. An inspirational shot

            Saturn is looking good in the Southern sky at present. It's nice to be able to take astro photos in reasonable warmth!

                                The coiled up cable is CAT6 (20m) used to connect to my laptop indoors, the USB extender has 4 USB 2 ports I am using 3 for each of the cameras. The setup is balanced. There are 3 dew tape heaters being used. I no longer use the polar align scope. I use a compass and then tune using Sharpcap.
                                John, that $etup $cares the hell out of me.
                                Next 4 days forecast sunny and clear, so will do my best with what I have.
