Quote:I went downstairs to let the dog out and noticed an opening (maybe a 20 minute hole) in the omnipresent clouds, so having my SLT mount and MAK handy (they were already in the corner from a rare observing session this past Wednesday), I did what any sane(?) man would do! After a quick one star align on Vega, I had a chance to take in Albireo (always beautiful), M56 (dim, ghostly blob) and M57 (best of the evening, tiny but a bright donut against a jet black sky with a smattering of stars using the 28mm RKE). Here's a photo of my session (note that the night is exceptionally damp as we had heavy rains earlier into the evening...humidity is 100%, but the meniscus stayed dry!)
