This is a rotated image of AR 2768 and guessing AR 2769. Perfect day, hard to believe a hurricane is coming. Captured with a Lunt LS60 THad 60/50 B1200 scope and ZWO ASI 174mm camera with 3X barlow. I have tried Marty's cereal bag method for flat capture with my scope without success. Today I tried saran wrap instead, I think it worked. I have a tilt adapter that helps with Newton's but does not eliminate them totally.  Click image for full size.
