Hi Vader

And? You only need two things: location where you took photos and time from exif :) I am pretty sure that you have both.

Your pics are amazing!!!! That damn air Italy always avoids me 😪 got a nice Emirates 777 this morning en route to Dublin. Got a few specs of dust on my eyepiece but I'm a bit wary of cleaning them.

Hi to you.
I have cleaned my mirror on my scope a few times.I unscrew the 6 screws take the mirror out put it underneath the tap with warm water and go over with my finger tips and then put some De-ionised water over it and then use the Hair dryer over it until dry. De-ionised water leaves less stains.
Before you take the mirror out mark the mirror and the tube so it goes back in the same place.
Hope this helps...............
