Imaged around 1800 hrs 13 Feb 2019. A bright Moon after more or less weeks of grey cloud in southern UK was a tempting opportunity. Instead of using my DSLR at prime focus on my Celestron Edge 9.25", I used my guiding camera, ASI 120MC, and was surprised at the resultant quality even though the sky was a little misty.
