Re: April 2018 Astrophotography Contest

1/2 way through the month and no submissions yet. I am dealing with clouds and other issues but hope to get something in the next week or so. Somebody must have some clear skies somewhere to get a pic in for the month. Sean won 2 in a row so he's out giving the rest of us a fighting chance.

My new QSI6120 should arrive soon so I am hoping for some clear skies to get my monthly submission. Lets see some pics coming in and have a great April showing!!!

I actually went out and caught a few shots of Markarian's Chain. But I lost many frames due to tracking on a galaxy and not a star! ROOKIE!
