This was taken on July 31 2013 for 3 min exposure with SBIG 2000XCM(self-guiding), 10inch Orion F3.9 Newt, CGE Pro and CCDSoft
The location is my balcony in Bow, Washington, which is 10 miles from the famous bridge collapsed 2 months ago.
By the way I had crossed the bridge more than 100 times.
I had tried to take series of 8 pictures for stacking.
But the cloud moved in and self guider lost the guiding star resulting in elongated images from No 2.
I had a family vacation in Yellowstone NP in early August.
After being back to Washington State, it had been partly cloudy.
I had tried to take image last night with no luck.
By the way, I will try Maxim DL trial version for 30 days.
I wish to have clear sky so that I can get a better picture.
