This is only to illustrate the length we all try to go through sometimes to get in some photons.
Doing some guiding tests that evening at F/10, I then tried to acquire a galaxy, under Montreal's bright sky dome (Bortle 8) and near full moon. Not a great shot in the end but a fun test using Orion's Sky Glow Imaging filter.
