My Gemini mount controller finally got a replacement motherboard after being out of commission nearly a year. I did a test image last night of IC426, a reflection nebula just north of Alnilam, the middle star in the belt of Orion. Happily, all systems worked fairly well and I am able to autoguide once again! My acquisition and processing skills are a bit rusty but never-the-less here is a quick version of IC426.
