    you’re welcome, vino! it was caught after a brief rainshower so there were some high, thin clouds illuminated by the really bright moon last night… but, by golly! it’s still there!

    I am not much of an observer but more of a theoritician…so is it not possible to see the nebula of Eta Carina with telelscopes from ground?

    Although I’ve already had one request honored (IC 2062 – MANY thanks), I’ve yet to see a request for 47 Tucanae = NGC 104. That should really look impressive in your current imaging setup. Good luck & clear skies!
