Was hoping for a full night of imaging, but thick freezing fog quickly ended the evening with maybe 30 minutes of exposure time.

I've also realized that every time I try to image NGC 2024 I get odd internal optical reflections, I believe from Alnitak. Not sure if this would happen without the reducer or not.
