Description

After a long long time it finally happened: There was some good enough weather and it was weekend and it was new moon. ALL AT THE SAME TIME! Lol.

This image was taken at the Horowhenua New Zealand Astrophotography Weekend 2020. Half of the data was shot through passing clouds. So I'm not displeased at all with how this turned out!

First ever image shot with my new ZWO Electronic Auto Focuser. I'm loving it.

Bernes 142 is a dusty cloud in Chamaeleon.
