    Description

    I thought I was going to run out of time on this one and nearly abandoned it for the year but three [mostly] clear nights in early October brought it back to life. Very challenging to process overall but, in particular, star control was a big challenge... I went back to the drawing board a couple of times to better address the stars but finally decided to move on.
