This month it was covered almost continuously. Last night meteoblue announced a gap in the clouds arround 20:00 UT so I got the scope out to cool down just in case. It was raining when I got it out (protected of course).
And they were right, there was like 1 hour of clear sky.
Ths seeing was fair to good, but the transparency very low. I had to get the focal down to FD27.5 to make up for that.

Meade LX200R 10",IDS UEye Ruby camera and 2x barlow.

I like the contrast in the image, very good!
You have captured a wealth of detail despite of the
conditions.

Excellent image that begs for post processing resampling!

Flava, gorgeous image! Details very crisp and smooth. A 120% resize should hold up well. Thanks for posting

Steve

A very nice image, Flava! I'm surprised you got such good seeing during a brief break in the clouds. Around here clouds almost always mean poor seeing, whether there are holes or not.

Thank you all !
It was a 1h30 gap in the clouds and for a few minutes the seeing got better.
Here are the LRGB channels.
