I tried to shoot this as a RGB image but unfortunately I have suffered from high clouds through most this cycle with green being absolutely unusable. Now with the moon up and object already low on the horizon that probably won't happen before next year... This target was taken with high clouds in the sky so it does show that you can still image although you will lose details.

I hope this images inspires others to try for this fantastic but little photographed target!
