About this image

A short RGB image of the first 2 degrees of F3 from earlier today. The L frame was trashed by drifting cloud. First Quarter Moon not far away.  This was the first of seven consecutive reservations at itel New Mexico to even partly work due to a week of cloud and rain in this supposedly dry desert region! Lots of cloud about when this was taken as well......
