Power problems — 2 Comments

  1. That is the reason I use a dobsonian, no power problems! And if you rum off the mains, Eskom might surprise with a power sharing episode – Lovely dark skies but no power!

    I don’t know why your camera battery failed, Mine seems to last a long time, at leas long enough to take pictures. I switch it off between shots. The cold might have something to do with it.

    • Part of the problem was that l left the camera running while I was searching for the target, and because I was occasionally using it to look deeper than my eyes could go, it was on live view. And I’m not 100% sure that it was fully charged to start with. The cold might also have had something to do with it.
      Still, I would have spent probably another hour after finding the target, capturing light frames, dark frames, so I would have still been cutting it fine.
