Clear Outside promised a clear night starting in the early evening and holding up deep into the night, so despite having to cook I set up my scope early and polar aligned it as soon as it was dark enough. Sure enough, I started imaging right after the polar alignment hoping for at least 3-4 hours of integration time.

Sadly after roughly about two hours later clouds rolled in and destroyed every hope of a long imaging night. So I quickly took the required correction frames and brought the rig back into the house.

Nevertheless, I got a decent image, and thanks to the coma corrector I have on loan the stars look much better compared to my first light image. And what should I say? I simply love the diffraction spikes the Newtonian scope produces.
