Wednesday night was a good start to a long holiday. I started the evening trying to get shots of the ISS and shuttle passing overhead, with limited sucess and then spent some time working through the process of getting my mount aligned, man, that takes too long, and followed up with attempts at shooting M42 and the ET cluster. Not the greatest shots as my mount still was drifting and there was some wind but I hope to master this over the holiday.
ISS and the shuttle over Plano
M42, the Orion nebula
The Owl (or ET) cluster. Looks a bit like a little stick man or ET if you squint. Or maybe a Jawa with no robe on.
