I was out last night in the cold, windy, but clear night. I didn't have to fight dew, but I did have to fight stiff cables, cold hands and feet, a mount that was acting up, and annoyingly enough I found out that too stiff of guide cables can possibly cause your guide camera to slightly rotate and destroy your guiding unless you recalibrate during a hard slew to a different target. Still, I got a few things. As normal I did my 5-15 minute speed processing because I have not learned PI yet. Of course you can tell I spend very little time processing when you compare my images to many of them here.
