  • Waiting for the telescope.
18:29
  • Starting up the system.
  • I will start with the default flat and see where that leads.
19:11
  • Aligned on source, centering it. This is going to take a while, the pupils are terrible. I had to apply a LOT of coma to correct things, but still...
  • I will use the original pupil mask until things start to look better.

21:21
