#91 - Tuesday, June 27, 2017 - What God hath wrought!

It cleared up Tuesday night, so I just had to go out!  It doesn’t get dark enough until 10:30 PM, however, so I didn’t have a whole lot of time.  I haven’t gotten a proper image of the Lagoon Nebula before, since it’s bigger than the FOV of my SCT, so I decided to image that instead.  As is usual for the memorial scope, it looked fantastic, and stacked even better.

I’m in love!  This telescope is so awesome.  I called it quits at 1:30 AM because, y’know, work is a thing.
