Reached early evening to the observatory.. Summers have started to show up with the change in the CCD camera cooling system. Inwas imaging at -30C, now swtiched to -20C. I have already got dark library for -20C so no extra work for me!

Tood some images of M82, the cigar galaxy tonight, until it changed the meridian. Also my observatory wall started obstructing the telescope view. 

Adaptive Optics' Autoguiding was working at 3 Hz.. 3 corrections being applied in 1 second!! Though it was slightly windy at the time, but 3 Hz kept the galaxy dead center at all times!

Inital processing seems promising!
