Well I now have a better power supply for the  857D, I'm now using the  Tiro PS-430 that normally powers the Icom 718. I know once I get my full UK license I'll have  to get something a bit beefier  as the 857D  can draw up to 22 amps on Tx  when set for 100w
I also spent some time on slooh last night  Imaging Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON)

and  then Jupiter .......
and finally the Moon.When the Moon is at waning gibbous it's a good time to see the southern lunar highlands and the crater Tycho with its extensive system of rays
