More moonlighting

With the moon almost full I thought it was worth spending some time experimenting with some different settings on the guider and trying some new ideas for balancing the mount without feeling the need to be taking images. However, with Auriga now coming into my window, I decided to try for M35 & M36 while the sky remained clear. Given the moon's brightness and relative closeness it still seems possible to get a useable result with star clusters. (The small cluster to the lower right of M35 is NGC 2158). Details for both images: 10" F4.3 Newt. 10x 240 second exposures @ iso400 with CLS in DSS, CS2 & XAT.
