Description

When I set up all my gear the sky was clear. However after taking two images the sky clouded over.

I decided to keep imaging hoping that I would get an image between clouds. After taking 85 images only 9 were usable. The weather man said it was going to be clear. Anyway with all of that said please enjoy my most recent image of M92.
