I decided to give the Veil another go but his time I tried 15 minute exposures for the first time. Having good results doing ten minute subs I figured why not try 15. The Atlas mount did not disappoint and I was able to guide nicely at 15 minutes.


Also early in the week I found a few hours of clears skies at my house in Davie and inspired by Jose's nice HA capture of the Elephant Trunk I gave that ago but widefield.
