This weekend worked out great for my Linux and guiding test

Successfully got Lin_Guider to work under Ubuntu 15.04 which I could never get to work under Mint with my Orion StarShoot Autoguider. Not only is guiding working, but so is image downloading from my camera to my computer. Image below is Lin_Guider guiding on a star near M27.

I also just ordered the Celestron RS232 cable and RS232-USB so I can us Cartes du Ciel for Goto controls of my CG5 mount.

Just about all the pieces of the puzzle are finally together. Only thing left on the big astronomy list is an observatory, but that is still a ways away from happening.
