As usual, the actual visual appearance was way more beautiful than this iPhone snapshot, but you'll get the idea. You can also see Antares and a few stars in Scorpius as well as Nunki and (at least on my phone :) ) most of the other stars in Sagittarius' Teapot asterism. Sorry about that lens flare.

It was a very nice scene last night of these favorite observing objects. Just had to swing the scope left to right. Seeing here in Gastonia, NC was just good, 3/5 but, tonight will be better 4/5 for a couple of hours before the clouds roll in.
