Guiding was surprisingly good while the dome pointed away from the wind < 0.5″.

Poor image. Only 15 subs of 150s at 391 / 20 102 ED & 0.75x reducer, 294C. Clouds came in & I think dew messed up the guiding.

Messier 81 (right), also known as NGC 3031 or Bode’s galaxy for its 18th century discoverer, this grand spiral can be found toward the northern constellation of Ursa Major, the Great Bear. M82(left)is a starburst galaxy about 30,000 light-years across. It lies 12 million light-years away near the northern boundary of Ursa Major. Triggered by a close encounter with M81, the furious burst of star formation in M82 should last about 100 million years or so.
