This is my first photo-posting! It is a 2 panel mosaic of the rho-Ophuichi Cloud Complex. Between weather and equipment issues I thought I'd lost it for the year but managed to sneak in some time. In the end, I got less than 4 hours per panel total when my goal was 10 hours so I'll probably add to it next year.
This is the first "real" photo from a remote observatory I'm setting up about 40 miles north of Lake Tahoe (21.4 w/ the moon and 21.7 without, except of course in the south where the light dome from Reno is just apparent).
