Last night we had the first “Good-Excellent Seeing” I’ve seen in several months.
I was lucky enough to get 2 nights of “clear” skies this week but with “Poor Seeing”, so having a third night with better “Seeing” conditions was a great bonus!
I targeted NGC 2403, due to its sky location at my site, being away from the surrounding streetlights.
I’m amazed at the quality of the image versus all my “Poor Seeing” night images.
I wish we had more of these above average seeing nights!
In addition, I’m posting the results of the previous 2 nights efforts.
