The Moon on 8/11/08

Tonight is supposed to be the best night for the Perseid meteor shower, but the Moon is really, really bright. It will be setting around 1:30am though, which is when the peak time for meteors stars. I’m hoping to see a few and maybe even get some images.

For right now, I’m hanging out in my driveway taking some long images after having successfully drift aligned (I’m getting the hang of this…) the scope again tonight.
