Description

It's a bit early in the season for me to get great results on this target, but at around 03:30 I like to go to bed for a couple of hours before work, and the position of the Iris in the sky made it possible to just leave the kit running while I slept.
Will probably come back to this one later in the year and do it properly, but here's a preview :)
