My response and thanks are late because I was waiting to get back a second roll I shot through my LX200 GPS. I followed your instructions and I had no problem with developing the film. However, my Leonid shots came out poor because there was just too much light. Some shots at the end looked like they were taken in the middle of the day. My other roll came out alright. I have some good moon shots through my Lumicon UHC filter that turned it a light rusty color. I also got M42, M1, and some open clusters. I had two problems on this roll. One was focusing. I can only see the very bright objects through my viewfinder and it makes it hard to focus. How can this be made easier? The other problem is in some exposures I have light trails, where it looks like the light from the stars just runs across part of the exposure. I figure it must me caused by me touching the scope or it moving some other way. Am I right in this assumption?
Thanks again for your help,
