It's not been a good month really. Poor weather combined with a low moon, and absence of bright planets in the evening all make for a dull time. Messing about with the all-sky camera, and the almanck display has filled in the hours, but I would rather have been outside. Perhaps next month will give better weather.
I use an 11" Celestron SCT (CPC 1100) on an equatorial wedge, with an 80mm refractor as a guidescope. They are housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI1600MC for imaging.

Sometimes it is necessary to make the best of a bad lot. I miss a decent planet in the evening. I've caught a few meteors, on camera this month, though.
