Finally a clear night in North Texas (aka God's country) and the moon is out like a beacon. Took out the Oberwerk BT70s anyway and I was patient. Big victory dance night. I found NGC 2362, h3945 (aka 145 Canis Majoris) and M93. h3945 was beautiful and I could just make out the orange and blue of the the double stars. The heavens are breath taking!!
Well boys, we got three engines out, we got more holes in us than a horse trader's mule, the radio is gone and we're leaking fuel and if we was flying any lower why we'd need sleigh bells on this thing...
