This was taken during a beach week at Surf City, NC, from the deck of our beach house overlooking the waves. About 14 hours of OSC data. The positive: dark skies and no horizon obstructions and clear weather almost every night of the week, shocker! The negative: it's still a low object in NC, and there was some haze from ocean spray. But it was fun to set up and have everything working while I slept, thanks to Voyager.
