Notes: Moon is out of the early evening southern skies .. so I'm back in the south for imaging. This one is faint, and not imaged under the best sky conditions (at least there was no moon). Smoke from a fire near Santa Barbara was in the air for all but the last nights imaging, along with the marine layer haze ... causing the background to be brighter than normal for my site.
