I was all set to do a 3 hour exposure of IC1396. As I was waiting for total darkness, I captured a quick 1500 frame video clip of the moon. This is the equivalent of about 150x (750mm focal length-webcam). I was planning to throw on a 3x barlow to get up close and personal, but a tree suddenly jumped into the picture. LOL
I waited until about 11pm and then decided there were too many high whispy clouds to capture much nebulosity in IC 1396. I need a pristine night for my unmodified, unfiltered camera. Anyway, I was tired so I called it a night......
