The weather was great! I had a visit by a bear. But the light pollution from my redzone driveway was really hampering my images. At first I thought it was bad flats, but then I realized. It's just the image moving across the light dome. Funny how much better imaging was when it was 15F.

Enjoy.

Really nice job on all three of these, Adam - your NGC 4567 is a great target.
