The mini-WASP array grabs M11 in the Scutum star cloud

Yet ANOTHER clear Moonless night last night – and although feeling really sick with sleep deprivation – I went outside and fired up the beast.

Really glad I did as the target was the open cluster M11 which sits in a particularly rich part of the Milky Way called the Scutum star cloud.  The accompanying image is Sky 90 data only, there’s two more datasets from the two TS 80s waiting to be processed and amalgamated with the Sky 90 result.  And to top it all – it looks like it might be clear AGAIN tonight, not sure if I’m going to survive this 🙂
