Eta Carinae Nebula and Centaurus A.
- Good imaging and tracking during the first half of the night, smoke and moisture prevented the same results for imaging Centaurus A. While clear, seeing was within 0.7 arc seconds according to meteoblue and error rates according to TSX were 0.3 pixels in RA and Dec.
- Still needs some focus work as it seems that the ‘upper’ half of the CCD image is out of focus whereas the rest of the image is in focus, possible that the camera is not square on to the imaging plane.
- May need to employ a CCD tilt adjuster and examine images using CCD inspector.
