We went on a mission up to Sedgwick with a group of friends and coworkers. OK conditions but the .8 meter provided good views as usual.

This was the first time I got a good look at the dumbbell Nebula. Larger than I expected, has a peculiar bow-tie shape to it. Near Zenith this time of year so the bad seeing near the horizon was lessened here. Very cool object.
