8th May 2018

I opened up around 23:00 and stayed until 03:15, imaging M27 and the very faint (I haven't been able to identify it yet) comet 21P/Giacobini–Zinner with the Tak. I have had problems with my D5300 so used the D750 instead. If it transpires that the comet is too faint and not visible in the images it should be considerably brighter in a few months. Good conditions although a lot cooler than the previous 2 nights.
