M97, The Owl Nebula
« on: 2015 June 08 13:56:13 »
Although it is a fairly bright object, M97 presented challenges, starting with my location: It was setting behind a tree only a couple of hours after dark, so I had to capture it in short sets over multiple nights.  On top of that, I had to acquire it under substantial moonlight in the last 2 weeks, as it would have been completely inaccessible to me if I waited for the moon to wane. I am sure that I will want to come back to this object when it is better placed for me in the winter.
