holy moly it worked

My setup totally worked, I'm kind of in disbelief. Took a shot of M5, short exposure, not very good visibility tonight, but I'll combine and post no matter how it looks just because it's sort of monumental for me to finally have a setup working. STOKED!!!!

So i finally get my setup working...

and it goes cloudy. lol. couple days next week look promising. Still had one issueon my mock runs I'll investigate tonight, and that's likely a video driver error as the whole screen went blue and the computer rebooted in the middle of an image, so I'll investigate that if it comes back up which it likely will, but I managed to work out all the computer issues last night and take some shots of clouds. lol.

Something is wrong, and I'm tripping out. So I wiped the drive and am starting again with XP, which we know works well with all of these programs.
