Once again, the weather cleared for a short time and I was able to gaze upon the lovely Iris for treat, even with Luna shining brightly. Attached is the crude sketch I made using low power/~68x of Iris moving from one night to the next. Last night is was about a degree north of Beta Aqr, and it should remain bright for a few more weeks and moving westward.

The "In-the-Sky" website provides a finder chart, so if the weather cooperates for you, give it a try using your Questar and post your results/tips for others.

Outstanding project. If the weather ever clears here in the Southeast I will try for this.

Thanks for the reference and the sketch.
