Notes

A cloudy evening eventually led to clearing skies a little after 10pm. After doing some work on OnStep during the day I headed out for another session. The OnStep performed excellently and with only 1-star align the GoTo was getting the target in frame each time. I took images of Makarian's Chain and the M81/M82 pair whilst enjoying some visual astronomy with a pair of binoculars. Temperatures fell steadily throughout the night.
