Subject: [AZ-Observing] Good Seeing at Messier Marathon

As is often the case in the hours before the first cirrus arrives, the seeing 
on the desert floor was very good last night.  I had my 18" scope at 600x, and 
the image of Saturn was holding up well.  Since I brought the camera along, I 
took a pause from the marathon to shoot this image.

As the clouds thickened, it turned into a long pause lasting until well past 
sunrise.

Tom
