Moon Occultation and Messier Objects Again

We went to the Observatory Friday night.  I cleaned my camera sensor for the first time since I bought it....  It REALLY needed it!

I used a heater around my refractor for the first time ~ it worked very slick =)  I stayed out photographying until about 1 AM.  There was a heavy dew on my gear cases but my lens was dry.

While photographing the Moon for some Earthshine, I accidently filmed an occultation?

Can't get too much of M31

The "Teapot" was in a GREAT spot for photographing...

The Lagoon Nebula, M8, at various exposures

The Trifid, M20

Love those globulars!  M22

Whirlpool Galaxy, M101
