Despite what the weather forecast predicted, it was actually clear yesterday between 5:00-8:30pm! I quickly set up my equipment in the backyard and put in as much time on M45 as I could. I lost the focus-lock screw for my refractor (Getting replaced today:) so I think the scope fell out of focus slightly during capturing. Bummer. Also, I desperately need a field flattener/reducer.

Yes its a way of life Philip. There's coffee, and then there's Tims. You and Bob are very close to my location and unfortunately experience similar weather! Supposed to be clear tonight though! :)
