After several weeks with only grey sky, January 2nd was clear skies and I took the opportunity to shoot some objects. First I tried to shoot the Lowers’ Nebulae but it was too low at the sky so the house roof came into the view and I had to abort this session.

Next object were the Pleiades (will be added to this blog shortly) and again the M81/M82 Bode and Cigar Galaxies.

M81/M82 – Bode & Cigar Galaxy

Below are the shooting parameters and the Astrometry annotations.
