Today I've spent some time cleaning up the sensors and every piece of glass. ie: no more dust bunnies...
Also aligned the OAG stoke alongside the long side of the Atik 314 sensor, had to redo the all focusing (pain in the ... for an OAG)

As the night was again super clear, I tested some long exposures to find out when the star trails will appear and they never came.


120s exposure:



240s exposure:



480s exposure:



960s exposure:



1920s exposure:

Forget about the over exposure, check out the roundness of the stars !!! :woohoo:

1920s exposure, bottom left corner:
