Description

After two months of no clear skies (seriously, the last clear night was Nov 30), I was able to get out 3 nights in a row and do some imaging. I wanted to test out the new Opt Triad Ultra Quad-band ,filter and Pegasus focuser that I got for Christmas. I only got just over 5 hours of imaging on this target because I wanted to do a couple other before the clouds come back and I have to move on to galaxy season.
