Tonight was the first night out in about 80 days or so. The sky was fuzzy and the fog is increasing, so serious observing or imaging is out of the question. Bummers.
Even still, I decided to pull out the gear to test the belt drive focuser motor on the scope (as opposed to the camera lens) and while I was at it I also decided to shoot a few single shots that would make images similar to visual observations (in a darker sky then I actually have).
So, consider these shots a sort of camera aided observation of a few objects before it got too cold to stay out there.
Without a lot of comment, I "observed" the Flame/Horsehead, M42, M78, M105 (and friends) and the Leo Trio. All shots are 5 minutes with the exception of M42 which has a 30 second shot of the core added. The scope is the Vixen ED103s and the camera is the modded 1000D.
It will be nice when we actually get a clear view of the sky again. The last few "clear" nights have had either high haze or thick fog obscuring the view.
