Data From Yesterday Looks Good

Glancing at some images from last night's session has me anxious to reduce the data and look at the results.  I've reserve any expectations because sofar I've been surprised every time.  The seeing was great and I got probably the best focus sofar. 

I collected 1600 images in total.  841 of those images had Jupiter in them.  Looking at individual image statistics, I calculate that about 1141 images had at least one target.  So that's an efficiency of 71.25%.  Not bad at all.  I look forward to the day when I don't have to measure "observing efficiency".

Here's a sample of the data:
