Description

What a terrible couple of months for Astronomy and Astrophotography. Clouds Clouds Clouds... or Supermoons...

I had a Christmas miracle the other night and the clouds parted for a couple of hours. I was able to do a test of the I-Series filters that have been waiting for 6 weeks to be tried out. Excuse the ugly stars. It was very cold, I was having software issues and didnt realize that my corrector was algihtly tilted in the focuser. Either way, I was able to get some data before the clouds rolled on in.
