Description

I finally had another chance to work with the barn door tracker last night. I've acquired a new (old) and much, much sturdier tripod since my last outting and what a difference it makes.
Here's Deneb and hints of the North America Nebula again. (Every other target seems to be blocked by trees or houses :( )
