I was late reaching the observatory.. Tried some more data on M82 galaxy.. could only get 10 minutes before the telescope limits were reached.

The black eye galaxy was in a good spot. Focused the scope on a star near the galaxy.. guide star was found and got a first image of 5 minutes.. it was a good sight!  Then something happened to the guiding.. recalibrated the guide star and all but still the autoguiding was not good.

I thought is having some more data on M87 Jet but i already have a good SNR there so was not so appealing to me.

I found a good bright star for autoguiding for M3 globular cluster. After the exposure check, i could guide at 4Hz! Baged 40 minutes data of this cluster and called the night off.
