Description

Great evening out shooting stars and drinking fine cognac! Some thin clouds were periodically interfering, and feeling a bit rusty -- still having some problems getting my camera flat in the drawtube in the 8''; guiding was a bit wacky in the other shot I took, but it settled down for this one. Good to beat the clouds for a change, though. Hopefully weather will be clearer as we head into spring.
