Notes Wind was still a factor in the earlier sub exposures, and affected guiding.  Seeing and transparency were fair to poor.  Moderate deconvolution was required to reduce oval stars.  First image using new SXV guider and USB 2.0 interface.  This object really needed more exposures, probably around 3 hours worth.
