8th October 2012 AstroPhoMo (Astro Photo Month)

This image is the upshot of my attempts to align the telescope mount to the south celestial pole by imaging and adjusting as I went.   After about an hour or so I managed to get the pole within reason near the center of the image.  The adjustments are very fine so any further attempts might just make it worse not better.  As the Orthopaedic Surgeons at my work say "Better is the enemy of good!". 

 This is the final image I took and was taken in the wee hours of this morning and is 40 minutes continuous exposure.
