My first 3 night span of imaging w/SGP. Left the iEQ45 in place, but took the scope / camera back inside each night. Simply remounted the scope into the saddle and picked up the sequence again from where I left off. Best 70 of 85 frames based on SGP grading. 3.5 hours, 180 seconds @ ISO400 w/Canon T5i.

Really like PlateSolve2 and the manual camera rotator…makes life much easier. Maybe someday I’ll get automated focusing and rotating, but for now really appreciate these features.
