This past Saturday night/Sunday morning was a very good night! The transparency was good and the seeing was off the wall! It was my best night of the year. Very little dew, no mosquito's. I spent 7 hours out imaging my favorite objects, planetary nebula. I did a lot of imaging in Cassiopeia, Cepheus, Andromeda plus a few forays into Eridanus, Cetus, Orion, Aquila and Pegasus. Even when the Moon rose, it was not much of a hindrance, except when I went for NGC 2392.

 

My usual equipment was my Nexstar 8se OTA, ZEQ25 mount, native F/10 Focal ratio, ASI294MC camera, Optolong L-eNhance filter and my HP laptop running SharpCap 3.2 Pro. Most exposures were 10 minutes, gain 400, 2x2 binning.
