I tried to start observations with the high resolution spectrograph and noticed a hugh kind of amplifier glow in the images of the SX814 mono of the spectrograph LHiReSS III. I tested this camera inside … Read more
After the veil clouds had partly disappeared, I checked the collimation of the cassegrain telescope (C11 Celestron) , which I did not have to correct. Then performed another star alignment of the 10Micron GM2000 Qci … Read more
