Description

A short run on this galaxy. I was facing some collimation issues which is visible in the star images.
Lot's of moisture in the sky! 97% humidity

The SQM went from 20,37 to 20,74 when the public lights switched off at midnight. It makes a difference ... was even noticeable on the frames that became a bit darker.
