I managed to escape after Thanksgivings lunch and head up to the NC Blue Ridge Parkway mountains. Very glad I did- near perfect imaging conditions- crystal clear skies, no humidity, no wind, 30-40F. What more can one ask for? Here is my try: 2hr 46min at ISO 1000/6min using a Hutech Modified Canon 50DH. Scope: Takahashi Baby-Q 85 at prime. Processed in DSS and PS.

Thanks for looking!
Ivan
