Observing Report – 2023-02-16 – WSP Night 4/High Winds

My objectives for this session are the same as the past two nights, which are to image an easy target early as a warm up for imaging Omega Centaur after  midnight. And like the past two nights, the winds and an overweight payload have caused too much flexure in a tripod that is too light.

Autoguiding and exposures longer than 5s were impossible, so I gave up.

Better conditions (no clouds, above average transparency, and excellent seeing are forecast tomorrow. I will carry these objectives into the WSP Night 5 session.
