Saturday night was sucker hole imaging. The QSI 532 camera was put in 3x3 bin mode. Multiple exposure at 30 seconds were taken until the hole closed up. Clouds caused the bright stars to be very large. There was no time to set up guiding.

The following test pattern is to help you adjust your monitor to best view the CCD astro images. The test pattern is used for adjusting monitor brightness, and contrast. Adjust monitor brightness and contrast to see all 16 gray scale levels. The most important adjustment when viewing astro images is to see the differences in all of the black bands.
