Software conflicts resolved, was playing last night with just slewing and focusing, etc. Downloaded the trial of CCDware and will be playing with that. ALMOST there. Things to do include figuring out orion starshoot autoguider in CCDsoft, and finding a thermometer that hooks up USB that is compliant with CCDware as you can refocus at set temperature changes, like 2 F change, it'll refocus on next shot, that's pretty awesome. So I'll be posting shots before you guys know it!

I'll talk to kalani about that. The dad loves telescopes and gets into all his talk about aliens and stuff.

Yeah, you still gotta take me up there to meet everyone so that I can go up and use it as a dark sky site!

yeah well neither of us been out much this winter, you guys got drenched with rains this year.

You'll be happy to know I'm already contemplating putting a remote control telescope observatory on Kalani's property.
