Quote This image is by no means any good I think, most due to the fact that the moon was up and therefore the sky was deep blue in color. I would however really like to capture every Messier object, and I'm therefore very happy to at least have gotten this. I started the session with M81, but thanks to the almost full moon it was even impossible to find it! Other than this, the night was wonderful with clear skies without any haze or clouds. If just the moon would not been there that night... Quote
