It's been freezing here lately. Tonight near the Blue Ridge Parkway by North Wilkesboro was cool and clear. Here is my 12.5" Astro-Systems Dob. A very nice mirror and M42 looked absolutely green and three-dimensional!
Great picture. Looks really cold though. Was cold here in my observatory while I was broadcasting on the 9th. Was only 12 degrees out at 1am. I had to shut down. Just could not take it and my fingers were frozen so I couldn't type. Just out side of Madison NC.
