Not a successful night, but it was fun anyway.......a clear night sundown to sunup. I tried to use our club's 120mm ST refractor, but couldn't bring it to focus........naturally I didn't do a trial run during daylight. Was forced to revert to my little 80mm ST.
I captured two mediocre shots tonight: M101, and M13. Neither will win any awards.
