Shot from the backyard in Allen, TX on 2013-01-20 @ 2300 CST. The seeing was pretty darn good, humidity was high as was the light pollution but it was bearable for my first time seriously out with the scope in a while. Camera control was through BackyardEOS which I’ve decided is the bee’s knees. If you have a Canon camera that has USB 2.0 on it, check this lovely bit of software out. Well worth the $30, $38 if you have an ASCOM focuser and want BYE to autofocus for you.
