M13

We had a bad storm come through yesterday.
I did not think I would get any scope time….
But I looked out around 10:30 and we had clear sky’s.
So out the the BackYard Observatory I went.

M13 is one of my favorite objects to observe.
From a dark site and a clear night you can naked eye see it
and its a wonderful binocular target!

Jupiter

My first try with the new camera

Its not the best I have seen but its mine!
I used my 10″ DOB
Viewing was bad I had to play hide and seek with the clouds
