Description

The weather here all spring and summer has been awful for astrophotography. If there was a clear night there was a full moon, otherwise there was full or partial clouds all the time. :-(

But I did manage 3 nights of imaging. It is nowhere near enough...

SMC 346 is definitely worth another go later on.
