The cloud didn’t finally shift until 9:00 p.m. last night – but when it did we were left with a pitch black, clear, Moonless night like I haven’t seen for about a year.

After a couple of stalls where the object I wanted to image was behind trees, I settled down on the M106 region with the mini-WASP array and 20-minute subs.  I needed to refocus the refractors after an hour but in the end got 24 x 20-minute high-quality subs which I will enjoy looking at today.  Shame I went to bed at 1:30 a.m. as it appears to have stayed clear all night.  Need to get more automation sorted out!
