    Default M107 another glob squeezed in where squeezing was the only way



    Weather not cooperating. Got a few minutes of a globular.

    To be honest, I was so weary that I'm not entirely sure I was taking frames of M107. It was late and frustrating.

    9 x 15s C8 on AVX with Fuji X-A1 (iso6400) -- darks only

    Welll, at this point, I doubt anyone cares too much one way or the other. But the glob pictured above is not M107. It's M80.

    I went back thru my records and found a few frames of M107 that I snapped before moving over to M80.

    So here's M107 (and the one above is M80):

    Nice work. I understand the tiredness thing. Last weekend I was at a dark site chasing Herschels. Earlier in the day I went for a 2 mile hike in the high desert (with 2 bad knees and about 90). About 1:30 am even with my scope/mount working like a charm with the tiny, weeny H's I had to call it quits. My thinking was at a 3 though my desire was at a 10. Good things is though, get some sleep and your ready for the next time

    Nice shots Joe. Weather and fatigue certainly take their tolls on those of us without permanent setups. Albeit, your perseverance paid off- nicely done!!!
