Description

The weather has been unbelievably horrible this year. Through the months of April, May, June, and half way through July, this is the only DSO I've captured. The forecast for the next week has 5 (FIVE) clear nights! I'm cautiously hopeful that I'll get to go after the Veil Nebula complex! Fingers crossed.
