Observing session 7/8/2011


Black River Astronomical Society observing session at the Nielson observatory. 1/2 Moon tonight, so one could not see much up there. Add to the fact the humidity and foggy optics. Used prime focus with Sony a330 on the Meade LXD75 sn-10″. Imaged the Ring nebula (M57) and then the Sunflower galaxy in Ursa Major, but the images were too washed out from the Moonlight. I did get a decent shot of M13 in Hercules though. This is the best shot with all of the Moon glow.
