First light of IAS remote telescope “Klein-Lukas”, Details at Astrobin.

Alas, the setup had to be done in a hurry with many problems and the Epsilon is badly collimated at this point in time. A planned maintenance trip now most likely faces travel restrictions.
So please bear with the image quality, especially on the left side. ;-)
