Notes Seeing and transparency average, guiding better than average.   Light pollution  is getting too great in my area with all the new business and shopping centers.  This object is really too faint to do it justice from my backyard.  After adding the second night's data, I really saw no difference between 5 hours and 8 hours worth of data.
