I opened up the big dome around 22:15 to gather Hydrogen Alpha data for M81 & M82, the weather has not been great lately so this project feels like it is taking some doing. The Moon was 97% so it will be interesting to gather more Ha data when there is no Moon to see how they compare. I also used dithering for the first time with the new setup as having processed some data from earlier in the year I believe that it will beneficial. It was a lovely clear night despite the Moon with no technical problems. I closed up around 03:40.
