    Default a quickie M16



    Got some clear skies this morning just before dawn so thought I'd get an early start on M16.

    Had trouble getting good PA and had to rush this before the sun got in the way.

    Nice one Joe. The only complaint I have is that how can you be shooting summer time DSOs when it is still winter here?

    That's a good one

    I've been reading the weather reports for the US and wondering what's going on over there. Somebody forgot to click the "Spring" button somewhere.
