After 21 cloudy nights we finally got a beautiful sky last night in Northwest Alabama! I was anxious to try out the Meade focal reducer that had been setting on the scope for 2 weeks. I had heard both positive and negative comments about it but I must say, I am very pleased with it the first time out. Here's a shot of 52 Cygnus, the Western Veil. It's only 7 shots stacked at 30 seconds each.
