Had my eye on a big band of rain and cloud running right down the East coast last night – by some miracle it just kept clear of Hampshire.  So yet ANOTHER clear and Moonless night for imaging.

Decided to set the Sky 90 array up on a Carbon star in Gemini, SAO79474 or N Q Geminorum.  As luck would have it, there was also an asteroid 73 Klytia in the same FOV.

Images of the asteroid and Carbon star below.  The small bunches of tiny “stars” in the asteroid image are hot pixels as the asteroid data is “average” combined in order to keep the asteroid.  As this is dithered data there are no hot pixels in the Carbon star image as that has been SDMask combined.
