Description

Finally a clear night although the moon was obliterating everything. Good time to try my new NB filters and have a first attempt at NB imaging.

Couldn't find anything suitable in my little slice of sky apart from M97. I tried H,O and S and saw nothing at all on the S so pressed on with H and O. Got 1.5 hours of each and have combined them as H00. NB saved the day as I took a L frame and got nothing but a washed out mess!
