Had perfect conditions last night here at home with clear skies, low to no humidity, and steady skies. I set up at sunset in preparation for targeting galaxy NGC 891 which would be in prime location for me to target around 11:00. With time to kill I decided to take a shot at Messier 27, the Dumbbell Nebula in Sagitta which was almost straight overhead. Took 180 frames 20" each at ISO 1600. I'm pretty happy with the results considering I'm using a stock DSLR Nikon camera from my house which doesn't have the darkest skies. Telescope is a Meade 8" SCT with tracking but no autoguiding. I spent 2 hours on 891 but the nebula came out much nicer. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes.
