Westward look at the observing field
My setup - Explore Scientific ED127CF riding on a Losmandy G8-11.
As darkness fell the temperature fell into the 50s and the sky was nice and clear however the humidity was a high. By midnight the temperature dipped to 46 and everything was wet with dew.
Having not viewed for many months, I was quite rusty and fought focus, guiding, and dew problems most of the night. I was cold and tired but I managed to get a half-way decent image of the great Orion Nebula (M-42), its companion nebula (M-43) and also the running man nebula (NGC-1977). The stars are a bit elongated owing to the poor guiding, but AstroToaster stacked the images well.
19 x 30 seconds exposure ED 127 mm triplet at F 7.5.
Hopefully the weather will be good again tonight and I can remedy my issues and get some imaging done.
