This image of M92 is the first I have been able to produce since September of 2017. Moving from Texas to New York last fall was very disruptive. It felt great to get my first imaging time in 9 months, even though I am presently limited to a site with moderate light pollution.

The seeing was really poor when I started shooting these subs, and though it improved towards the end, the wind started whipping around. The result is pretty good, considering the conditions.
