Moon thru smoke haze

CG5ASGT/Astro Tech AT6RC/Canon 450d modified with the filter changed/my observatory

Conditions were not good last night, scattered clouds, smoke smell and haze from a fire out west, and I somehow managed to kill my mount alignment while I was

setting up the usb to serial converter that talks to the scope.



oldstargazer



Captured in cpc1100 using dbk21, stacked in registax, looks like due to weather little late for best lighting.



Good Luck to all our entrants!

Lets try for getting our moon and Jupiter with at least one of its moons in the same frame. Sounds like something even those with a point and shoot would be able to participate in.
