Description

Another morning, another imaging session near my university's parking lot, and a surprisingly cold one at that. In fact, the forecasts I checked the evening before were ~10°C warmer than the actual temperature! This time, I had my 3x barlow and the right plugs to avoid using the power strip with my Power Tank.

Notes:

  • There is a complex of small rifts on the North Equatorial Belt, starting at the central meridian and stretching eastward.
  • Oval BA and the STB Ghost are rising.
  • The Equatorial Zone is orange.
  • Oval BA has lost its red color after having it for over a decade.
