The seeing was quite steady at sunset here in Southeastern Pennsylvania at sunset on June 8.  The triple conjunction of the planets Jupiter, Venus, and Mercury had just ended and Mercury was approaching maximum separation from the Sun.  I used a Meade LX50 10-inch SCT equipped with a 2x Barlow Lens and an Imaging Source DFKAU04 web camera.   I manually inspected and selected the top 130 frames out of 2000 for stacking with Registax 5.
