Nice shot, John. If it wasn't so cold I would brave the elements to see this one. I may have to force the issue if it brightens more.

BTW you can see with normal eyepiece

Yes, northeast Tennessee but it has been single digits at night around here for several days straight. My older bones cannot stand that along with the wind.

This should be an easy pic for your Mallincam. Looking forward to it.

That is a sweet shot.

Which IIE?

How about a video?

So far, too many clouds in Los Angeles, for me to try.

Cheers!

Coolness. Could you tell us what scope setup was used?

I've been prepared with my heaviest Boston winter clothes but clear skies and wakefulness have missed each other this week. Your post gave me encouragement to keep trying!

Have taken a more recent picture of the event with your IIE to compare with this one?
