Description

This night was supposed to be the best! Days of planning...I was supposed to try my luck at the Integrated Flux Nebula around M81 and M82.

Polar align, some framing, eye in the viewfinder... and suddenly, no more stars!

FOG.

I waited 4 hours.

FOG.

Frome time to time I could discern Sirius so I focused on that.

MORE FOG.

Change of plans, let's go for an easy one... M44!

1h30 of waiting... and literaly 15 seconds to frame.

Sequence launched.

Went to bed.

Nice surprise the next morning, I had 150x25s alright subs at the end of the night.

Hope you like the dots :p
