This is my first image with a remote telescope; clearly I'd not read all the instructions and somehow managed to take a 20 minute exposure during the day inside the closed observatory. Will try again another time.

It is a bit like one of my flats! Although with the strong banding and increasing illumination away from the centre...

Last night I thought I had a major issue but the obs roof was still shut. We live and learn.

At first glance I thought you'd taken up ultra high resolution spectroscopy, James!

It's a good image of out of focus daylit dust! Not what you'd planned I guess.
