Having been away and not had an opportunity to use the telescope since early May I decided to take advantage of what looked to be some benign conditions.  Of course the clouds arrived as darkness fell but I managed to get 45 minutes of data before I was forced to give up.  Given some of the data was shot through light clouds am pleased with what came out after stacking.
