With the forecast looking good and the early sky crystal clear, I was excited to set up my telescope over the weekend. Finally the moon was out of the way and I was planning on a good session at the scope. I was able to get a handful of pictures before some unexpected wispy clouds moved over the flatirons and spoiled the evening.
Once the clouds started to move in, I switched over to a regular camera lens and the ball head joint so that I could pick out spots in clear pockets. One of those spots contained the Andromeda Galaxy hanging above one of our pine trees.
