I'm a Newbie, so please be gentle with me!
Third time out with the EXOS2-GT PMC8 and the Explore Scientific 208 f/3.9. Had a frustrating night, took me two hours to get the guidecam to see enough stars to do a polar alignment in sharpcap. I finally started imaging just after midnight, and had to pack up around 2am. I managed to crash the tube into the tripod once, and then waited a little too long to do a meridian flip. Both times, simply parking the scope and realigning the arrows got me back in the game. Go-to's with the new firmware are incredibly good, considering I have a zero star alignment. M16 is clear on the other side of the sky from Polaris, and the go-to got it in the first camera shot. Two iterations of plate-solving and the target was dead centered.
We had 9-10 MPH winds last night, but since we haven't had clear skies in a while, I had to get out there while I could. PHD-2 had some trouble holding the target with the gusts, leading to some blurred stars. But when it wasn't gusting, it held under .5 RMS fairly regularly. This was from bortle 6 skies, 20 miles outside of NYC, shooting directly in between street lamps and over my neighbors porch lights and towards the heavier light pollution. Not too much I can do about that though.
Target: M16 - Eagle Nebula
