After my first fuzzy, light-washed shot of Andromeda, I HAD to try it again under clear black sky. Just my second time setting up the new scope and mount, but I'm really happy with how it went. It got down to 20F and I had to wait until 3 am for the moon to set, but I got some quick single-exposure captures of the usual suspects. My polar align was solid enough for a 7-minute exposure of Andromeda, which seems like a lot to me at this stage. I'm blessed to live in a Bortle 1area - the only challenge is finding wide, flat spots.
