Odd, this was on my shooting list for Oregon Star party before I knew it was the challenge this month. I could have used a few more long subs, but we lost a few nights to weather.

Thanks Charlie, Scott and everyone who has voted.

I think NGC 1333 in Perseus would be a very nice target for October.
