Above, 160seconds, ISO 800, TOA with reducer at ~f5.8, significant crop from frame. Had some guiding issues on this one, but I thought the planetary was cool. 12/12/2004 at NHAC Neal site.
You can see a faint tail to the left, and another larger/wider tail off to the upper right. 12/10/2004, clear skies and vg to ex transparency until about 11:30. Seeing maybe a 2 out of 10, it settled down late but then the clouds formed. Only curves and resizing; needs noise reduction.
