September is now upon us and the longer nights are now here. The weather in the UK is not playing ball and I don't see any good nights at least until weekend.

I managed a good 6 hours last night. Not so lucky tonight, but tomorrow is forecast clear on all my apps.

it’s clear here until 10pm and then mega cloud is forecast. So unless there is a magic filter that can block sunlight/twilight I’ll have to wait until next week when it might be clearer.

Very surprising clear skies tonight. Tonight's a rare night, its not often I can see the Milky Way. Grabbing frames for the Eastern veil, looking nice and contrasty so far.🤞

I put all my stuff outside , set the scope , polar alignment done. Start to focus my dslr on Vega then arrive clouds a go go.  No way to guide at all …I guess is time to 😴

Have you got your scope with you?

No they said don’t take your scope but   If I was with an astronomer group I could. I took my skywatcher adventure. If it gets clear I will try to use.

The core is easy to blow out on the Iris nebula. I think I was taking 2 minute subs with my mono camera and RGB filters.

Yes that's what I noticed at 300s...I think it was a good decision to start over.  The core is looking better now and the guiding is improving.
