Description

Taken at the GNTO I wasn't sure I was going to pull this off as I was having mount issues and my tracking kept turning off early in the morning. Luckily I was able to just push through and get the image taken. When I got home found out there was a new update for the mount so hopefully, I won't have this issue again. While capturing images I also enjoyed the perfectly clear skies and worked on my Astronomical League Binocular Messier Objects.
