Here's the details on my upcoming meteorite talk.
Jupiter 18Aug2022 4:47AM

This image is the sum of ~10,000 video frames (best 50% of 20k). Two 120 second video streams were recorded with the one shot color ASI224 camera. My C11 telescope was at f/20 or 5600mm focal length. In this case, a Baader IR blocking filter #2459207 was used. Normally I use IR pass for monochrome capture. But The IR block always seemed to work well with OSC cameras for me.

From last night's Open Viewing night. Clear skies in Ortonville ! My son's first go at photographing a nebula. Turned out nicely.

Wow, mark your calendars for December 21st, 2020, Jupiter and Saturn will be close enough to image in the same frame.  Unfortunately, they will be near the horizon at sunset, but if we're very lucky, we might get a shot.
Venus is high and bright in the sky right now :)
M 1 - The Crab Nebula is a supernova remnant in the constellation of Taurus.
