beautiful night missed

Steve reported that the observing conditions at the CAO were "absolutely incredible" last night. He shot a stunning photograph of Kiron observing from the GBO with the C14 to his left and Sagittarius in the background.

If you look closely you can see M6, M7, M8, M16, M17, M20, M22, M23, M25, Neptune, maybe Pluto, the double star γ (gamma) Equ, and much more. If you're having trouble spotting objects, see the photo with tags.

As Tony said... "lucky ducks."
