Here we go. Trying to use the mount’s features as though I had no imaging experience. Assisted drift alignment, auto guide calibration, auto PEC train, Starlock guiding. Anyone would be able to do these procedures. Then I picked an easy target (Moon about to rise) and started shooting. The image has flaws; AT12RC needs to be collimated, for one thing. FWHM was nearly 3 arcseconds in short focus exposures. The mount, though, appears to have done a good job; FWHM didn’t increase much on longer exposures; just enough to account for seeing variations. There were no discarded light frames. When I get the FWHM down below 2 arcseconds we’ll get a more rigorous test of tracking.
