Notes Seeing and transparency average.   Something was terribly out of alignment in the imaging train, and it resulted in odd shaped stars.  In addition, there were at least 4 large dust motes to contend with.  I was able to "fix" most of this in PhotoShop, but overall, not one of my better efforts.
