    After doing M81 on the weekend, I figured I should do M82. This is a twilight-to-twilight series on M82 last night.

    Set it running in MaxIm DL after dinner, and it ran the sequence without issue, did the pier flip, and in the morning automatically shut down the observatory at morning twilight. I've been extensively testing the "new and improved" observatory shutdown controls, coming soon (hopefully next week) in the next update. It is a big step up for this feature!

    Again I used the STC-7 on the Ceravolo 300 Astrograph, in my suburban back yard. Used Red, Green, Blue and Hydrogen-Alpha filters.
