Sorry I missed the party. I was over at the SRSP and just couldn't bring myself to tear down and move over to Coinjock. I only took the dob with me last week - knocked off 143 objects on my Herschel 400 list. Went out Sunday night but fell asleep in the OBS and didn't notice that I hadn't plugged the power cord into the laptop. Anyways got out again last night and captured IC348. Omicron Persei kind of overshadows the small emission nebula. Made it a bear to process. Anyways still a pretty composition. Also see the note on IC348 and IC1985.
