I've been mainly working on my pier and mount of late. I didn't have time to focus and calibrate my new-to-me Lodestar X2 OAG guide cam, so I proceeded with my 60mm, f/4 (240mm), guide scope with an ASI224MC on it. When I got things mounted, relatively adjusted, and communicating, the Moon was still in its haughty 72% attitude. I figured I'd hit M51 in spite of the bright moonlight and 3/5(ish) seeing, to see what I could get.
There was a huge variance of moonlight, with the last 20% of lights having the relief of Moonset.
